School  Bus Drop Off

Western Allegheny Middle and High School students can catch a bus from school and get dropped off at the library Monday-Thursday with a signed permission slip available here.

Exam Proctoring

When staffing permits, the library will proctor exams for students. There is no fee for this service, but a donation to the library would be appreciated. Students must submit the completed Proctoring Request Form at least two weeks in advance of the desired date, or earlier depending on the requirements of the school or testing entity. Completion of a form does not guarantee the service; a staff member will contact the student to determine scheduling. See the Exam Proctoring Policies & Request Form for details.
