Media Center MS | westyorkareasd


The West York Area Middle School offers a great on-site media center! Situated on the second floor of our building with great views of the surrounding neighborhood, we’ve created an atmosphere conducive for independent and small group study with student work and computer stations. Equipped with traditional fiction, non-fiction, and reference sections, our media center offers something for everyone.

The media center is open every school day from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. If you need access to our databases from a non-district computer, please stop by the Media Center or contact Shelby Strickler, our Library Aide, for our online database passwords and user names. Come by and see us!
