Questions about books or fines can be directed to Mrs. Lent (tlent@hcps.us) or Mrs. Brown (mbrown@hcps.us) or by calling the library directly at 365-8036.


  • Each student has their own HCPS Google account.  It is important that your child remember their username and password for the first days of school in the fall. If your child has used Google this year please write down this information some place safe so that they are ready to begin the school year in September.
