Our goal at the Primary School library is to help patrons locate and obtain material, both printed and digital, for pleasure reading, for personal interest, or for research projects. The library offers a print collection of over 7,000 books and a "virtual library" with ebooks, audio books, encyclopedias, and databases accessible to all members of the Woodward community.

Need help or passwords? Contact your librarian, Mrs. McMichael.

  • Welcome to a New School Year and the PS Library

    PS Parents:

    It is both an honor and a pleasure to teach your student(s) during library-media classes and to assist them in reading selections. The Library-Media Center is a busy place and we hope that your young one finds visiting exciting and inspiring. Please make reading a integral part of your family time. A family culture of reading ususally produces avid readers!

    Many resources that are accessible 24 hours a day can be found on this web page. Please explore Destiny and our eBook collections. We also have subscriptions to wonderful online encyclopedias for your young student to use any time.

    Follow the Library-Media Center on Twitter @LarisaMcLearns and access more library information online via Edline which links to my blog, The Road to Reading.

  • Trueflix and Bookflix: Resources for eBooks & Educational Videos

    The Primary School Library is dedicated to providing more book titles and educational content digitally. We have recently acquired a subscription to Trueflix and Bookflix which is accessible at school as well as home, and indeed, anywhere there is Internet access. These online resources also work great on most handheld devices. Here are the remote access links to these sites:

    Use the same username and password as Brainpop and Tumblebooks. Again, many students are familiar with the username and password combination, but if assistance is needed, please email Mrs. McMichael or your child's classroom teacher. Try Trueflix and Bookflix today!
