Hawthorne Library

Hawthorne students visit the library with their class and teacher every week for at least 30 minutes..   Most teachers will also schedule an extra 2-3 sessions per project to finish larger research or literature-based projects or webquests.  Many projects involve using the chromebooks or  the TRC.

Book checkout is on a "semi-flexible" basis, with students in grades 1-5 having access to our collection every day. Students in grades 3-5 have been instructed in the use of our online catalog to assist them in their search for the perfect book.

Kindergarten does have a set schedule.

Book Checkout

Students in K-1 visit the LRC once a week to check out library books. Grades 2-5 may visit the LRC for checkout as often as necessary during designated checkout hours.  Checkout time is one week, and new books may not be checked out until the previous week's book has been returned.  Students have been reminded of our simple book care rules:

1. Keep your books clean and dry.

2. Keep your books in a safe place away from food, drink, younger sublings who like to color, rip, or tear, and animals that like to nibble.

3. Use only flat, clean paper as a bookmark.  Please!  No dogears!!

4. Return your books on time so all may enjoy them.  We do not charge fines, but lost or damaged books will result in a replacement charge.
