Library Media Center

Welcome!

Hardwick Elementary School's Library Media Center is 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 informational 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:

Monday -Thursday the HES Library is open and staffed from 7:45-3:15, often times later.

On Fridays, Kindergarten through 3rd grade students may visit the library if accompanied by an adult. Fourth through sixth graders may visit on their own with permission from their teacher and use the new self check-out station.
