West Point ES: Library Services

The school library provides a variety of books for reading and reference.  Books may be checked out by the students. If a student loses or severely damages a book, the parents will be responsible for reimbursement.  We also have a parent collection of books containing useful resources and parenting tips. Please feel free to view or checkout materials from our collection.

  • Provides access to print and non-print resource materials that are aligned to the DoDEA curriculum.
  • Facilitates library services and literacy programming that fosters a love of reading.
  • Defines the essential information literacy skills required for student achievement in the 21st century.
  • Collaborates with educators to design learning strategies and deliver instruction that meets the needs of the military child.
