About the library

The North Hagerstown High School Library provides an attractive, welcoming, intellectually challenging environment to serve students, faculty, staff, and visitors of North Hagerstown High School.

Use the link to the NHHS Library Portal to search our online catalog. Find what we have in our school library and also search the collections of every other public school library in the county. If you find a book at another school, it can usually be borrowed through interlibrary loan and will be delivered to you. See the librarian.

Through the NHHS and WCPS Library Portals you'll have free access to all of the online subscription resources the county and state have paid for. You'll find links to WCPS databases and WCFL databases. These are the good ones! So good, you'll need a library card to use many of the WCFL resources and a username/password for home use of the WCPS resources. See the librarian.

Need help? See the librarian! There are no stupid questions. Our primary job is to help students and staff so do not hesitate to ask.

The school library media specialist's role is diverse:

  • Teacher
  • Instructional Partner
  • Information Specialist
  • Program Administrator
  • Technology Coordinator

Library Media Specialists collaborate with teachers, administrators, and others to prepare students for future success.  The library collection is selected to meet curricular needs as well as personal interests. The WCPS Library Resources Portal is the place to begin finding and using resources provided by the Washington County Pubic Schools library media program. 

Research shows that students who use their school library score higher on standardized tests and do better in school.
