WHHS Library Mission Statement

The mission of the Wade Hampton High School Library is to ensure that students and staff develop critical thinking skills, are effective and ethical users of resources, ideas, and information, and are enthusiastic readers and lifelong learners.


October in the WHHS Library

This month we enjoyed getting to know some of our students better during library orientation and book check out time. Thanks to Ms. Johnson, Mrs. Serina, Mrs. Mitchell, and Ms. Jarriel for bringing their classes in for orientation.

Ms. Gibson's classes were introduced to Easybib and Mr. McAnally's class came in to work on WWII research.

New Chromebases

The library replaced three desktops with three new Chromebases this month. The Chromebases replaced desktops at the Destiny Quest stations and the student sign in station. These stations only require Internet sites to operate and desktop capabilities were wasted in these areas. Those three desktops were freed up to be used in classrooms and labs. Learn more about Chromebases here.
