"Books to the reading child are so much more than books--they are dreams and knowledge, they are a future, and a past."

~Esther Meynell~

My name is Mrs. Candice Trexler, and I am one of the teacher librarians (Library Media Specialist) here at Hardin Park Elementary School. My job allows me to work with students in grades Preschool-8th grade reading stories, assisting with research, recommending books, teaching information skills, and collaborating with teachers in the MakerSpace and their classrooms just to name a few! The Hardin Park Media Center is available to visit and enjoy anytime from 7:30-3:10 throughout the school year.
