Library Home

Welcome to the Hadley Elementary School library website. On this site you will find information about library programs, policies, volunteer opportunities, new books, and library promotions. You will also find information to help you with your research including a link to the library catalog, research databases, and websites.

The mission of the Swampscott Elementary School Libraries is to:

  • provide equitable access to information and resources for all elementary students
  • expose students to literature from a variety of genres
  • encourage thoughtful engagement with stories in multiple ways (listening, speaking, thinking, writing, drawing)
  • demonstrate the library is available for recreational reading and reading for information
  • show students the library has something for everybody
  • be fully integrated into and supportive of the district curriculum
  • ensure that all students are effective users of ideas and information
  • teach information seeking strategies
  • expose students to the technology used to access information
  • teach students to use technology to create
  • promote information and media literacy for all students
All library lessons serve to meet the library mission.

In the spirit of the November presidential election, I read Duck for President by Doreen Cronin to the kindergarten, first and second grade students. I also gave students in all grades an opportunity to vote on whether to continue the Get Into The Game...Read promotion until June or to end in December as planned. There are still a few classes that have not voted so votes have not yet been counted. Stay tuned for these election results!

We are now into December and earning a medal will be even more challenging. Students must read either 9 picture books, 7 chapter books, 7 easy readers, or one full length novel to earn a medal. Extra reading logs are attached to this webpage.

Please ask your student to bring their reading log to the library with them to claim medals.
