Welcome to West Leesville Elementary Library! 

We believe that reading is the most important part of education. The ability to read and comprehend has a direct impact on all other academic areas. Reading stretches your imagination; allows you to travel to foreign places without ever leaving your home; and increases your knowledge of the world around you.
