• Hillside's Parent Resource Library


    Did you know that we have a Parent Resource Library here at Hillside?  Our wonderful PTO has generously donated money to get the Parent Resource Library established and continues to help add new materials each year.  The Parent Resource Library (PRL) offers an extensive collection of books, CDs, and DVDs on topics of interest and importance to parents.


    The PRL is located in Hillside’s library and it is the first set of bookshelves near the library entrance.  Parents are invited to visit the PRL anytime during school hours.  To check-out available PRL materials, simply bring the item to the circulation desk in the library and open a library account using your contact information (name and phone number).  We hope to see you in the PRL soon!!!
