The school library at Wester Hailes High School is a bright, welcoming and vibrant space where our pupils are supported by a full time, professional librarian. Located on the second floor of the main teaching block, the library is on the same floor as the English and Languages departments and is easily accessible to all faculties to support teaching and learning.

The library is open to pupils throughout the day, including lunchtimes.

The library is closed at break and sometimes during classes.

Please see the library noticeboard for other closures, and follow our Twitter feed at @WhecL

Teachers are encouraged to bring classes to the library for:

  • Reading time
  • Curriculum investigation
  • PC and internet access
  • Anything else! Email Ms Prince to discuss.

The librarian, Ms Prince, encourages pupils to read for pleasure – you can borrow books to take home and Ms Prince can join you up to the public library to access eBooks and eMagazines on your phone or iPad.

We have an Escape Connect Relate collection in the library to support mental health and wellbeing. You can access more information about the Escape Connect Relate collection, including our themed booklists, on the Young Scot website.

We also hold copies of Teen Titles, the book review magazine for children and teenagers featuring book reviews written by Edinburgh school pupils – including WHEC pupils! There is more information about Teen Titles, including digital issues, on the Young Scot website.
