Hawthorne Elementary School

Mrs. Weaver

Welcome to the LRC

Hello!  My name is Mrs. Weaver and I am the Library Media Specialist at Hawthorne School.  There is some debate as to what I should be called:" librarian"," media specialist"," LRC Director"....  I will answer to all of these, because in my mind, they all lead to the same goal: to get your children to love to read for enjoyment, to introduce them to good authors and illustrators, and to connect fun, educational, and standards-related activities to all types of literature.

This is my 26th year at Hawthorne.  During that time, the library (LRC, LMC....) has been in many different places, even out in a mobile on the playground!  Our current beautiful space is the space I started in 26 years ago!!!

How does this work?

Hawthorne students visit the library with their class and teacher at least every other week for 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 computer cart-on-wheels (COW) or using the TRC.

Book checkout is on a "semi-flexible" basis, with students in grades 1-5 having access to our collection every day from10:00-11:05 and 12:15-1:30. 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, and currently visits the library every week.
