Password: Your birthdate like this - dd/mm/year (eg May 12, 2001 = 12/5/2002) or June 29, 2002 = 29/6/2002. And yes, type it day slash month slash year. NB: You do not need to add a zero before a single digit number!

 

e-books

Did you know that you can access e-books to read via our school catalog? It's easy... To be able to read an e-book when you're not in school, just type in our username/password (which I can't show on this public page, but you should remember this, and if you can't, stop by and we'll tell you what it is!

Lending Policy

Books can be borrowed for 2-3 weeks, but can easily be renewed by just popping by the library any time (or doing it yourself on the Destiny Quest App - look at the box to the left!).  While we do not charge overdue fees, we do expect books to be either renewed or returned on time. It is also each student/faculty/staff person's responsibility to pay for lost or badly damaged books. That just seems right.

Interlibrary Loans

WHS Library also participates in Interlibrary Loans from other  libraries in our RI consortium (RILINK). You can request a book from another library if you download our Destiny Quest App (See how to on this page!). If you need help, please stop by the library at your convenience! A book borrowed from another library is handled the same way we loan out our own books, so you will be able to check it out for 2-3 weeks (and renew it if need be) and will also be responsible for it.
