We invite you to send your questions about the Jane Riley Media Center at Hickory Hills Elementary to us by email.
The Media Center hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 2:45 p.m.
Students may keep library materials for two weeks. We do not charge overdue fines; however, any item that is lost or damaged must be paid for.
ResourcesThe Media Center has computers for student use. All library functions are fully automated. Students use the automated catalog to locate any material in the library. The Media Center catalog is available to any classroom in the building through the school computer network.
We participate in the Accelerated Reader program, which was designed to encourage students to read at the appropriate reading level. Books that are too easy do not encourage growth; books that are too difficult cause frustration. The most productive level is in between: books that are both pleasurable and challenging.
