Thank you for stopping by the library web page!  Please explore the links on this page to find out more:  what we are reading about during library classes, as well as library events (calendar), links to author's pages (links), and who we have to thank for special volunteer service (news).

I've been privileged to work at HPS (HES) since 1995.  I began my time here as a second grade teacher, then moved to the library in 2001.  I believe I have the best job in the building :)

My post-high school education includes:  Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from the University of Alabama in Birmingham, Master's degree in Elementary Education from the University of Alabama, Master's level certification in Library Media from the University of South AL. 

My husband Jack and I attend Gardendale Church of the Nazarene.  We have been blessed with awesome kids, the best inlaws anyone could ask for, and seven beautiful GRANDchildren:  Raigan, J.T., Brady, Stella, Seth, Katie, and Bradly!
