Library Mission Statement:
The WCGS Library Media Center program exists to provide students with literature that supports the WCGS mission and curriculum, challenges students to develop and engage their Christian worldview, and encourages and fosters a lifelong love of reading and ongoing discernment as a follower of Christ.
K-5: All students in the elementary grades visit the library once per week. In addition to checking out books, students learn library skills, information literacy skills, and hear read-aloud stories.
6-8: Middle school students may visit the library on their own or for information literacy lessons to accompany classroom curriculum.
We plan an annual Book Fair in November, a Used Book Exchange in May, and a Summer Reading Program from June through August.Hours
Book check-out and AR (during school year):
8:40-9 a.m. and 12:50-3:45 p.m. on all school days.
Special Reading Programs:
K-2, Monarch Award. Early elementary students will participate in the Illinois Monarch Children's Choice Award by listening to nominated books during their visits to the library, and voting on their favorite book in February. Follow the link to review this year's nominated books.
3-5, Accelerated Reader. Upper elementary students use the Accelerated Reader program to monitor reading progress on their independent reading. Visit our Accelerated Reader page.
4-5, Battle of the Books. This is an exceptional co-curricular opportunity for students who love to read. Our team has had a very successful history in this Wheaton Public Library sponsored event.
