Library Media Center Hours: Monday-Friday  7:20am - 3:30pm


  • Students have access to the Library before & after school, during study halls and lunch. 
  • Students coming during the school day are expected to scan their student ID.
  • All HCS students are issued IndyPL cards and expected to carry them for use at school and home.
  • A student’s library card number provides FREE access to extensive, research quality online resources such as databases, ebooks and audiobooks.  Library cards also provide access to downloadable music.
  • Students are responsible for any materials checked out on their card.  There is a $5.00 fee to replace lost library cards.
  • Books are checked out for 3 weeks and may be renewed online or in person. 
  • Students may request materials from other IndyPL locations to be delivered to Heritage for check out.
  • HCS does not charge daily fines for overdue books.  When a book is several weeks overdue it will automatically be declared “lost” by the library system.  Once a book is declared lost, the cost of the book plus a $5.00 processing fee will be charged to the student’s account.  If a “lost” item is returned the book cost is refunded, but not the processing fee. 
  • Sign up on IndyPL.org to receive email or text message notices & receive reminders 3 days before items are due.
