Library Media Center


The Willow Glen Middle School Media Center is a hub of creativity, inspiration, and information!

The Media Center provides a comfortable place for students to access and create media. WiFi is always available and we have 34 computers that support all daily academic activities.  Media Center staff assists students in locating books, checking grades, conducting research, writing essays, and printing assignments.

Students are allowed to check out two books at a time. The books are due back in the Library in two weeks with the option to renew as often as they like, with the exception of requested books. Our library has over 5,500 books, eBooks, DVDs, and curriculum support materials available to students. WGMS is continuously working to update and add books.

GALE Databases

SJUSD also provides ‘GALE Student Resources” for your student’s research needs. It’s an age appropriate search engine with a wealth of information. From outside your school network, GALE databases can be accessed using ‘SanJoseUSD’ for the password.

Gale Student Resources In Context reference database of magazines, journals, news articles, primary source documents, images, videos, audio files and websites.
Gale PowerSearch advanced tool for searching content from Student Resources In Context.

Online Destiny Catalog

The Media Center collection is searchable online through the Destiny Library Management System. Every student and faculty member is provided a personal library account.

Visit the San Jose Public Library website to search their online catalog and learn more about what they have to offer. One of their services is real-time, online, live tutoring assistance from 2:00PM to Midnight.


We have a list of desired items! If you would like to donate gently used books or purchase new books for our Media Center, please contact us. Thank you for thinking of our students and helping to make the Media Center a valuable resource.
