• Welcome to the Hartwell Elementary School Media Center! I am excited to be back at HES and working with our fantastic students. I received my Masters in Library and Information Science fro the University of South Carolina and have been a librarian since 2011. I am originally from Hart County, and I am happy to be back with my husband and two daughters. 

    Your students are so bright and I am looking forward to helping them select books that will help them grow as readers and as individuals. I encourage students to read various genres and varieties, provide programming that includes storytimes, book fairs, reading programs, and readers' advisory, and help students learn research skills. 

    The HES Media Center is open each Tuesday from 4:00-6:00 during the school week for START from the HART programming events. I am available to model reading strategies and readalouds to your students as well as extra book checkout and special programming events. There are also math tutors available for homework help or specific practice. Please let me know if you are interested in volunteering or visiting the library with your student to help them select books.
