About the Library


    The purpose of the WHS library program is to enable all students to be effective users of information and to appreciate and enjoy literature and other creative expressions. 

    We believe that independent, life-long learning is the ultimate goal of schools in our society, and that the library program is vital to creating independent learners.

    For more information about the information literacy program in the Iowa City schools, please visit our district library site.
