Our libraries equip students and staff to explore new ideas and enhance their learning. Curiosity is fostered. Students better understand and contribute to our world. This is our Hawthorn Library. 

Each of our elementary school libraries hosts the following information on their websites:

  • Follett Destiny - This is the library catalog system for students to search for and check out books from their school library.

  • Monarch and Bluestem Award Books - The Monarch Awards (K-3) and Bluestem Awards (3-5) are for students in Illinois to nominate outstanding books.

  • Online Resources - Each library provides additional links to other helpful online resources.
