The Robert Clapp Memorial Library
The Clapp Library serves as a central meeting place on campus for research and other learning. Williston's library has a collection of more than 45,000 books, recordings, and DVDs, adding more than 1,000 new items each year. The collection encompasses middle school through college level material, thereby providing excellent support for student research across the curriculum.
Williston benefits from a professional library staff, which is available for one-on-one assistance. Given that the library is open for use throughout the class day, during evening study hall, and on Sundays, Williston students have greater access to a library than most other high school students. Classes also frequently meet in the library to work on research projects during the academic day.
Visit the library portal for more information and to access online resources and the collection.
The Online Catalog, reference and periodical databases, and a variety of other resources are available through the campus network and via the Intranet from students' homes. The Clapp Library is also a member of a regional resource sharing consortium that makes materials from other libraries available.
The library has iMacs, iPads, and laser and color printers. Wireless Internet access is available, along with several laptop ports. There are an additional sixteen laptops available for loan and use within the library.
Located upstairs is the Writing Center. Established in 2005, the Writing Center provides students with additional opportunities to receive individual instruction for enhancing basic writing skills and improving their ability to compose expository essays, research assignments, creative and technical pieces, and more. The center is open during a large portion of the academic day and during evening study hall.
