Library Media Center

Welcome!

Hardwick and Woodbury Elementary School's Library Media Centers are here to serve our students, faculty, staff, and community members. Staffed by Library Media Specialist, Lisa Baranyay, (a.k.a. Ms. Frizzle on Halloween, right), and a handful of fantastic volunteers, we strive to provide the tools for all your information and literary needs.

If you have any questions or need some help, please come in for a visit or email Ms. Baranyay at the library: lbaranyay@ossu.org.

Library Hours:

  • The Hardwick Elementary School Library is open Monday through Thursday from 7:45-3:15, often times later.
  • The Woodbury Elementary Library is open on Fridays from 7:45-3:15.
  • If Ms. Baranyay is not in the library, Kindergarten through 3rd grade students may visit with an adult. Fourth through sixth graders may visit on their own with permission from their teacher. Books may be checked out on the clipboard - please remember to write down the HES or WDB barcode #!
