The Library is Open!


Our Library is continuing to support our students, teachers, and community during virtual learning. With our March closure, we sent students home stocked with books. Now, our focus is on the return of library items, so we can continue to circulate and fulfill our school needs. Books may be returned daily, during school hours, with no fees/fines.  Our Book Return Bin is located at the school’s main entrance off the car loop.  It will also be available during packet pick-ups in the bus loop.  Similar bins are located at all HCPS schools. 


Our students are encouraged to request a library book by submitting a BOOKHUB form found on our Virtual Learning Commons page: 


Curbside pick-up will be offered every THURSDAY and you will be notified when your student’s request is ready.  Please note, the time and location will alternate each week: 

Packet Pick-up Weeks:  3:005:00pm in the BUS loop 

Non-Packet Pick-up Weeks:  11:30am-1:30pm in the CAR loop (Grab lunch at the same time!) 


Lastly, don’t forget about our Book Nook (Free Little Library) located near the flag poles in the CAR loop.  It is restocked weekly and open to the community.  Feel free to take (or share) a book anytime, but please do not return library books here.  Book Nooks are available at all HCPS schools. 


Thank you, and happy reading! 😊
