Ms. Thomas’s Book Wishlist 

Thank you for your interest in donating to the HCP library! I am passionate about offering students a variety of literature and choice. I am also passionate about diversifying and expanding my collection of books to include a wide range of perspectives, cultures, and experiences. Often, Ms. Thomas has a Donor’sChoose project that is active. Check the HICD Facebook page, as it is often shared there. Ways you can contribute to the library:

  • Donate a new or gently used copy of one of your favorite Young Adult titles

  • Buy a new or gently used copy of any of the titles listed below

  • Buy a bookstore gift card

  • Donate a monetary gift directly to the Media Center account (this check/cash donation can go directly to Mrs. Judy Luster in the front office). 


Thank you to author Joanne O’Sullivan that donated 2 copies of her novel, Beneath the Sky!
