Hawthorne Elementary School cuts the ribbon on a new library makeover

Thanks to volunteers from the Target Corporation and The Heart of America Foundation, Seattle’s own Hawthorne Elementary School received a beautiful new library makeover today. The school’s Gloria Jean Warren Memorial Library received new furniture, new paint, 2,000 new books to line the shelves and several iPads.

Fourth and fifth graders from the school helped design the new look and were the first to enjoy all of the amenities following a ceremonial ribbon cutting with Mayor Murray, Seattle Public Schools Interim Superintendent Dr. Larry Nyland and Hawthorne Elementary School Principal Sandra Scott.
