My name is Karla Hardin. I have been a librarian in HISD for 22 years. I have worked at Love Elementary part-time for the last 6 years and this year, I am happy to be here full-time! I love being a librarian because there is something new to learn and teach every day. I am a big believer in the importance of making reading fun for students so that they can let their imaginations run free! To support this, I created our library into a “playground” where the students can have fun, connect, interact, and build memories with their peers and the books.
Students visit the library once a week with their class. During library time, we read a book together and students have an opportunity to check out books at their reading level.
