• About the West Oakland Middle School Library

    Welcome to the WOMS Library! Our mission is to create a safe and welcoming space that encourages literacy and creativity. We strive to get students excited about books and implement programming that supports literacy, STEM, and makers ideals. Additionally, we support teachers and the community with access to resources.
