Welcome to the HWMS Library

    Middle school is an exciting time for students.  Not only are social events and relationships more important to student life, but they are more confusing.  Some of the best examples of middle school life are in library books.  The stories in the middle school age book relate to what students are going through at this age.  They can be sad, romantic, or adventurous.  Whether it is a classic written many years ago, or a current series, all of the stories in a middle school library book take you to another world and when you are finished, just might give you insight into the world you are learning to live in today. 

     This page will give you suggestions on the most popular books, as well as information on all forms in media at the HWMS Library.  If you are in need of any additional assistance, please contact Mrs Christy Ward, HWMS Media Specialist.
