• My name is Karla Hardin. I have been a librarian for 22 years within HISD. I have worked at Love part-time for the last 6 years and this year I am fulltime! Yea!!! I love being a librarian because there is something new to learn and teach every day. I feel that I have created the library into a “playground” where the students can have fun, connect, interact and build memories with their peers and the books. I find pleasure in being a part of this unique sense of comfort the library provides.
