Hazel Wolf Library

Hello from the Hazel Wolf Library!

The Hazel Wolf Library is the hub of student learning and support. We encourage students to develop their literacy skills by finding the joy in reading all types of books.  Our library collection is always growing to meet the interests and needs of all of our Hazel Wolf students and staff.  We have some amazing new online resources that can be accessed through our library site as well as the SPS Library website.

Library times for classes and students are going to be a little bit different this year, please be patient as we figure out how to maximize both student health and safety AND access to our awesome library collection.

Students can come to the library at the following times:

  • Before School (starting at 8:25),
  • During Lunch (MS, 4th Grade and 5th Grade) and After School
  • with their class at a regular time (K-5)

During these times, students can:

  • check out books
  • read quietly
  • Middle School students with BYODs can use their phones

At this time, students won’t be able to do maker space activities in the library, however we are trying to figure out a safe way to add these activities back into the library schedule.

During the School Day

Elementary and Middle School teachers will bring classes to the library as needed – we operate on a flex schedule. Kindergarten through 2nd grade will have weekly story and checkout time. Dr. V, our librarian will teach students how to find books and how to use the online library catalog to search for books. We will talk about great books to read! We will explore the Washington Children’s Choice Picture book nominees as well as the Towner Award books. Students will vote for their favorites in March.

We will discuss internet safety and various ways to use the computers. 4th and 5th grade students may choose to participate in the Global Reading Challenge, sponsored by the Seattle Public Library. There will be other activities in the library throughout the school year.
