    We want all of our Hawthorne students to keep reading every day during winter break!

     
    Here are some easy (and free) ways to get books when school is closed.
     
    Go to your public library! Getting a library card is free and so is checking out books at both the Wheaton Public Library and Carol Stream Public Library!
     
    Read books online. When you're all cozy in your holiday PJs, who wants to go out in the cold to get a book? Don't forget that even though Hawthorne is closed, the online resources are still available. PebbleGo and PebbleGo Next offer nonfiction texts on all sorts of different topics. You can access both of these databases through the LLC's Research and Reading Resources page (have your parents email Ms. Young if you need the password). 
     
    Through a generous grant from the Student Excellence Foundation, Hawthorne students have access to more than 100 Capstone Interactive digital books. Go to MyCapstoneLibrary.com to see what's available! (have your parents email Ms. Young if you need the password).
     
    Both Wheaton Public Library and Carol Stream Public Library offer TumbleBooks through their websites. TumbleBooks has a wide variety of books including picture books, chapter books, and graphic novels. Use the search box to find some of your favorites like Mercy Watson, Nancy Drew and the Clue Crew and Geronimo Stilton! (The Carol Stream Library also offers TumbleBook Cloud and Cloud Junior with a wider selection of chapter books.)
