What is Hawthorne’s Library Reimagination?
Hawthorne’s Library Reimagination is a way to bring together our students’ supporters to fund a 21st century library at Hawthorne school. Whether you are a parent, teacher, community member or book lover, you are welcome to join in!
How does it work?
Champions of Hawthorne Elementary will be promoting our campaign within their social networks. Everyone and anyone can donate money to help bring our library into the 21st century!
Where does my money go??
All donations go to updating the library at Hawthorne Elementary. Funds will be used to purchase high interest fiction books, replace our aging non-fiction collection and purchase modern presentation equipment such as a smartboard and document camera.
Why participate?
Because you get the great feeling that comes from giving back, and by helping kids in your community now, you’ll help make a brighter future for all of you.
How do I know my donation will make a difference?

Hawthorne's Library Reimagination

Join me! I’m raising money for the 2012 Hawthorne Library Reimagination campaign and I need your help. Hawthorne Elementary is a K-5 Seattle public school located in the Mt. Baker neighborhood. 78% of Hawthorne students qualify for free or reduced lunch and your donation will help ensure they have all the resources they need to excel.

On a visit to Hawthorne, you’ll see a diverse group of excited, curious learners engaged in dance, art, and drama. You might be lucky enough to see kindergartners releasing their class butterflies or 5th graders practicing for a school play.

Hawthorne also has a school library, but it’s not the one of our dreams. Outdated non-fiction teaches that Pluto is a planet, Ronald Reagan is president and that the Soviet Union still exists. High interest fiction is scarce and students often have long waits for their favorite Dora or Captain Underpants book. Lessons lack current technology and software that bring our students into the 21st century. But the Hawthorne Library Reimagination campaign seeks to change all that.

We need your help! Be part of the team that helps reimagine Hawthorne’s library!

Hawthorne Elementary Campaign (sent September 9)


Savannah has been in Kindergarten less than a week and I’m already starting the fundraising circuit for Hawthorne Elementary. First stop, the Re-Imagine Library Campaign. Hawthorne’s symbol “the rising Phoenix” is fitting – two years ago this was a failing school and now it’s a fighting school.

Hoping you can join us in the “fight” for getting these kiddos a better library.


Hawthorne Elementary is dedicated to providing a quality and enriching education for all students.

Two and a half as many Hawthorne students passed the State WASL Reading Test in 2011 than in 2010.  Hawthorne Elementary seeks to keep that growth going by providing all of its students with access to rich literature, current non-fiction and relevant technology.

Tell Katie why you this cause!
