THANK YOU!

We just want to say "Thank You" for being patient with us as we have worked tirelessly all summer to find a new system that can help customize and provide Heartland with a fun and enjoyable online library experience. We are continuing to add new items into the site daily as we are overflowing with amazing literature, biographies, easy readers, picture books and manipulatives. We can't wait to share with you all that the library has to offer! Please feel free to click the "Library Website Tutorial Video" button below to receive a tour of the new site!
