The Library Media Center serves approximately 300 elementary students and 30 staff members throughout the school year. The collection has over 10,000 print and digital books, 15 magazine subscriptions, and other materials for check out. In addition to these resources, the Library Media Center has laptop computers, tablets, and ipads, as well as, cameras, filming, lighting and editing equipment available for classroom checkout.

At West Platte, we encourage students to make full use of the Library Media Center to further their studies, expand and deepen their minds, and increase imagination with a hope they will make the world a better place. Educational technologies are constantly changing, and school library resources also are evolving to incorporate the latest technologies to enhance learning and challenge students.
