Hawthorne Elementary's library reimagination campaign

September 12th – October 12th, goal: to raise $10,000

Two-and-a half times more Hawthorne students passed the State Reading Test in 2011 than in 2010! To keep our scores high and our students motivated, our library is in dire need of new books (high-interest fiction books and updated non-fiction books) and technological presentation equipment.

Please help us bring our library to the 21st century
