One Week Friends -- Anime at Hawthorne

One Week Friends -- Anime at Hawthorne

Hawthorne Library
06/02/2017
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Every lifetime is composed of millions of memories... but what happens if those memories don't all connect? When Yuki Hase notices that Kaori Fujimiya seems to be alone and friendless at his school, he immediately wants to reach out to her. Much to his surprise, though, his overtures are turned down, and he's completely stunned when he finds out why: it seems that ever since she was in a tragic accident, Kaori has been losing part of her memory every Monday, including all her recollection of everyone who's become her friend.

It's not that she doesn't want friends, but that she can't remember having any. That's not enough of an obstacle for Yuki, however, and he becomes determined to make friends with Kaori every week. Because while most memories fade, there are some that, if you believe strongly enough and never give up, might just be able to last forever.

Hawthorne Library
06/10/2017
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

PG | 1h 47min | Animation, Adventure, Comedy | 23 November 2016 (USA)

For centuries, the greatest sailors in the world masterfully navigated the vast Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, 3,000 years ago, their voyages stopped for a millennium – and no one knows exactly why. From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated feature film about an adventurous teenager who is inspired to leave the safety and security of her island on a daring journey to save her people. Inexplicably drawn to the ocean, Moana (voice of Auliʻi Cravalho) convinces the mighty demigod Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson) to join her mission, and he reluctantly helps her become a wayfinder like her ancestors who sailed before her. Together, they voyage across the open ocean on an action-packed adventure, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills her quest and discovers the one thing she’s always sought: her own identity.

Assassination Classroom -- Anime at Hawthorne

Hawthorne Library
06/16/2017
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

At Kunugigaoka Junior High School, Assassination Classroom class 3-E is the lowest of the low. With abysmal test scores and no future prospects, they’ve been given up on and hidden away from the main campus at the top of a deserted mountain. But when a super-powered tentacled creature with a thirst for destruction becomes their new teacher, they’ve got a brand new assignment to get them inspired about school: take him out.

In addition to reading, writing, and arithmetic, the murderous monster behind the lectern will teach his students everything he knows about the assassination game. Should some eager beaver prove to be a Grade-A assassin, he or she will save Earth from extinction – and collect a hefty reward. But they’d better study up, because their saboteur sensei has already taken out most of the moon, and our planet is next on his list!

Book Discussion of Some Luck by Jane Smiley

Book Discussion of Some Luck by Jane Smiley

Hawthorne Library
06/21/2017
6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Each chapter in this extraordinary novel covers a single year, encompassing the sweep of history as the Langdons abide by time-honored values and pass them on to their children. With the country on the cusp of enormous social and economic change through the early 1950s, we watch as the personal and the historical merge seamlessly: one moment electricity is just beginning to power the farm, and the next a son is volunteering to fight the Nazis. Later still, a girl we’d seen growing up now has a little girl of her own.

The first volume of an epic trilogy from a beloved writer at the height of her powers, Some Luck starts us on a literary adventure through cycles of birth and death, passion and betrayal that will span a century in America.

Join us for Hawthorne Library's monthly book club, The Salad Days! This group is tailored to (but by no means limited to!) readers of the millennial generation looking to explore books and popular culture. We meet the fourth Thursday of each month at The Daisy Cafe and Cupcakery (2827 Atwood Ave). You can pick up books at Hawthorne Library.

"Life is suddenly full of drama for low-key Harley Jackson: A woman in a big red pickup has stolen his bachelor’s heart, a Hummer-driving predatory developer is threatening to pave the last vestiges of his family farm, and inside his barn is a calf bearing the image of Jesus Christ. His best friend, Billy, a giant of a man who shares his trailer house with a herd of cats and tries to pass off country music lyrics as philosophy, urges him to avoid the woman, fight the developer, and get rich off the calf. But Harley takes the opposite tack, hoping to avoid what his devout, dearly departed mother would have called “a scene.”

Then the secret gets out—right through the barn door, and Harley’s “miracle” goes viral. Within hours pilgrims, grifters, and the media have descended on his quiet patch of Swivel, Wisconsin, looking for a glimpse (and a percentage) of the calf. Does Harley hide the famous, possibly holy calf and risk a riot, or give the people what they want—and raise enough money to keep his land—and, just possibly, win the woman and her big red pickup truck?" (Goodreads, 2017).

A Wild Rumpus: An Anji Play Experience at Lussier Community Center (RAIN)

Central Library, Alicia Ashman Library, Goodman South Madison Library, Hawthorne Library, Lakeview Library, Meadowridge Library, Monroe Street Library, Pinney Library, Sequoya Library, Readmobile
06/28/2017
4:30 pm - 7:00 pm

TODAY'S THUNDERSTORMS WILL MOVE THE WILD RUMPUS TO THE LUSSIER COMMUNITY EDUCATION CENTER AT 55 S. GAMMON. SEE YOU THERE AT 4:30!

Enjoy play-centered, child led activities in the park each week. The library will provide special play equipment to spark your children's imagination. At the end of each event, kids will create a Play Story, drawing and/or writing about their play for that day. Wear messy clothes, bring a water bottle, (optional) bring a picnic dinner or purchase a meal from the "Let's Eat Out" local food carts, and make an evening of it!​ This event is created in partnership with the Madison Parks Division and funded in part by a grant from the Madison Public Library Foundation.

“The physical exercise and emotional stretching that children enjoy in unorganized play is more varied and less time-bound than is found in organized sports. Playtime—especially unstructured, imaginative, exploratory play—is increasingly recognized as an essential component of wholesome child development.”
¯ Richard Louv, Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder

Kids Code Madison is a free club for upper elementary and middle schoolers! At Kids Code this summer, we will bring out the Raspberry Pis! The Pi is a small, affordable, micro computer. The first week will focus on setting it up and getting it working. Later this summer we will be hooking up lights and buttons and doing physical computing using python, a computer language. You do not need to attend all four sessions to work with the Raspberry Pis.

The summer session of this volunteer-led program, will also continue a lab for kids who want to continue past projects and code with their friends. New and experienced kid programmers welcome!

Himouto! Umaru chan -- Anime at Hawthorne

Himouto! Umaru chan -- Anime at Hawthorne

Hawthorne Library
06/30/2017
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

To her classmates, Umaru Doma appears to be the perfect girl. She's beautiful, friendly, and fashionable, earns top grades, and seems to be able to do any task asked of her with ease. She's even humble and polite! However, if Umaru's classmates could see her in the privacy of her home, they wouldn't even recognize her.

Once she's inside the door, the pretty clothes come off, the orange hamster hood goes on, and it's time to pig-out on snack foods, binge-watch television, and play violent video games! This version of Umaru is everything that the public Umaru isn't: she whines, rolls on the floor, leaves messes all over the apartment, and makes life miserable for her poor older brother, Taihei. Even the most guarded secrets have a way of being found out, and, as Umaru becomes even more obnoxious and outrageous, her two lives are bound to collide in disastrous fashion!
