Karen Hokanson

Many of you know our librarian at Silver Oak is Mrs. Karen Hokanson. She loves to work with parents who want to help their children learn to love reading. Why? Because Silver Oak has the best selection of library books in the district. She is even willing to check out an extra book or two if you (or another responsible adult) come into the library with your child. Kindergarten parents take note: this is also possible for your kindergarten students if they come with a responsible adult.
Not only is she passionate about books, Mrs. Hokanson is also a rock hound. That's right, she is always ready to share rocks or help students identify their rocks. Next time you are in the library, take a look at the big fossil from her yard.
Please take the time to “check out” Mrs. Hokanson, Spider, the rocks and our wonderful, Silver Oak library!

Library Pet

Stop by the library and meet Spider. She is Mrs. Hokanson's purple pet tarantula. Spider turns 16 years old in 2016. She can live to be 25 years old. Go check her out. She’s quite furry (the tarantula, not Mrs. Hokanson)!
