Hello and Welcome!

The Tom Rice Library Media Center (Hilltop’s Library) can help students and teachers with a variety of services. Our library contains over  21,000 fiction and non-fiction books, 16 periodicals, and 34 student computers. The library is open from 7:00 am to 3:30 pm and students are welcome before school, nutrition break, lunch, or after school without a pass. Students who come to the library during class time must show a valid library pass or proof that they are not scheduled for a class that period.

All students are welcome as long as they observe classroom and library rules and are respectful to each other. We recognize that students need a quiet and safe place to study, do school work or research, and read for pleasure. The library media center provides this for them.

Students may check out textbooks, library materials and obtain research help at any time during normal library hours. A current school I.D.card must be presented to check out books or use the computers. The 34 computers in the library are for research and school-related work only.

I am happy to help you with your research projects, papers, or your reading needs. If you can’t find what you are looking for, please let me know and I’ll help you find it. I am open to your recommendations for new titles for our collection. New titles are added on a monthly basis so stop by, check us out and see what we have to offer.

Thank you,
Ms. Esparza
