Our Collections

OUR COLLECTIONS

Each HPISD Library strives to provide a broad collection of resources that presents varying levels of difficulty, satisfies a wide range of interests, and represents varied points of view. The collections include fiction books, nonfiction books, audio books, graphic novels, eBooks, reference materials, periodicals, audio visual materials, professional books, and online resources. The materials are intended to support the district curricula, to encourage pleasure reading, to build knowledge, and to represent many ethnic, religious, and cultural groups.

The campus libraries serve large populations of students and staff; it is the libraries’ responsibility to provide access to a diverse assortment of materials to meet the needs of its many users. It is recognized that every book in the library will not be relevant for every student.

We encourage readers to practice self-selection skills in determining the best materials to fit their personal interests and needs. Librarians are readily available to provide guidance in the students’ selection process.
