About Our Library

  • On behalf of the students and staff, welcome to the Sunny Hill Elementary Library Media Center. We are here to serve the needs of our patrons, short and tall. Please let us know if we can help you enjoy our rainbow of resources and services.
     
    The Sunny Hill Literature Collection consists of thousands of books and several periodical subscriptions appropriate for a wide spectrum of elementary readers. The Sunny Hill Multimedia Collection includes curriculum related video cassettes and DVDs, digital cameras, LCD projectors, and Smart Boards at every grade level.
     
    The staff and students at Sunny Hill would like to thank the PTO for their continuous support as we optimize success for all students.
