Ms. Maria Ricks

Hi! I am so excited to be your school librarian! 

I love discovering new stories and new ideas through books, and I am so happy to share in this discovery with your child. 

I received my Bachelor of Science degree in English Education from BYU-Idaho in 2008. After teaching English at Jerome High School in Idaho, I fell in love with libraries and decided to go back to school to become a full-time librarian. I earned my Master of Science degree in Library and Information Science from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign in 2012. Afterwards, I worked at the Converse County Library in Wyoming as the teen librarian until June 2016. 

Now, I am pleased to be able to work with the Hillsdale Elementary School and the Meridian Library District to create the best library we can for your child!
