We encourage you to read! You have so many options for entertainment, so it's important to remind you to spend time reading for pleasure; it's free, fun, and can be done anywhere! We have some ways that will help you explore our books.

WCHS Fiction Collection
Our fiction collection is now generified.  Generification means the fiction books have been shelved according to their specific subject.  It is just like a book store.  For example: Do you want a fantasy book? Now you can quickly brouse all the fantasy books in one specific section.

Don't forget we have a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction ebooks.  Directions on how to access these books is on the WCHS Destiny Page.

Rosewater Indiana High School Book Award

WCHS participates in the Indiana Library Federation's Eliot Rosewater Book Award Program. The book list and books are displayed in the Media Center. Read one of the nominated books and you will then be eligible to rate it.  The ratings are sent to Indianapolis in April to be added to student ratings from all over the state to decide which book will be the winner.  Read one or read them all!

WCHS Golden Book Award
Every nine weeks the Media Center awards the WCHS Golden Book Award to the class that has checked out and read the most books from the Media Center.   Help your class receive the traveling award!
