The mission of our school library program is to stimulate curiosity, creativity, and collaborative skills while building the knowledge base of our students. Librarians guide learners as they access resources; examine, analyze, and enjoy the works of others; and create and share works of their own. As a result, our students will develop an appreciation of reading and become effective, ethical, and discriminating users of information and technology.

Summer Reading

NNPS encourages all of its students to read during the summer for enjoyment, leisure, and learning. We have compiled a list of suggested books that are fun, engaging, mysterious, thought-provoking, informative, meaningful, inventive, inspiring, motivational, and more!

Attention, rising ninth-graders! Are you attending Woodside High School in the fall? If so, here’s a great way to support the Woodside Library and get your summer reading books. Woodside Library is hosting a summer reading book fair at Barnes and Noble at Patrick Henry Mall from Monday, June 1, 2015 till Saturday, June 5, 2015. Books may be ordered online from June 1, 2015 – June 11, 2015. Use Bookfair ID# 11616000 at checkout. There will be a table in the store containing copies of all the required summer reading books for Woodside High School and a percentage of the sales of these books during this week will go to support the Woodside High School library.”
