Welcome to the Hickory Point library! We take pride in the fact that the library is located in the center, or heart, of the building. It is our library, a place for community. We strive to ensure that it's an exciting and welcoming place for all Bulldogs, students and staff. It is a place to celebrate reading, growing, and exploring together. I am delighted to welcome students back into the library this year.

It is my goal to work in partnership with classroom teachers to get kids excited about books! Throughout their time at Hickory Point, students will learn to value books, reading, and libraries. All the while, they will be encouraged to develop a  growth mindset and to become responsible library patrons. During library lessons, students will be exposed to a wide range of genres and will have opportunities to read and explore for a variety of purposes as they develop important skills and discover their own reading preferences. I am thrilled to be a part of Hickory Point to be able to share my passion for books and reading with District 27’s youngest learners. Here’s to a new year in the library!
