Get Ready to Read.… This year’s Library theme is READ, LEARN, INSPIRE 25,000! All 2nd – 8th grade students are challenged to earn at total of 25,000 Accelerated Reading points by the end of the school year.
Welcome to Library with Mrs. Coyle
Blessed are the CURIOUS for they shall have ADVENTURES! The All Saints Catholic Library is transforming its physical space into an interactive learning environment geared to ignite hands on activities, technology literacies and encourage students to develop a lifelong interest in reading. The library has evolved into a “dynamic” space always ready to move and change to support multiple strategies for academic success. Several “Project Based Learning” units are underway and students are putting their best foot forward to master critical thinking concepts to complete the step by step process.
It’s time to warm up with a good book! The inclement weather conditions canceled the previous BOB meeting. The next Battle of the Books gathering will be in the library on January 22nd 3:15 to 4:15. Be prepared to discuss The Night Divided by Jennifer Nielsen. This riveting historical fiction genre centers around a family that is divided overnight with the sudden rise of the Berlin Wall and the postwar years in East Germany. The story will make you thankful for the many blessings we may take for granted. Also, if there is enough time available we will begin reviewing Ghost by Jason Reynolds.
Book Chatter is a podcast produced by the All Saints Library/Media Center featuring student reviews of books in our library.

All Saints Destiny Quest /Follett App
Even when school is out, students can continue to search through Destiny Quest, Title Peek, WebPath Express and Ebooks. The All Saints school community can remotely access the school library collection 24/7.
Destiny Discover offers All Saints students a collection of Ebook titles. Students can access these Ebooks on any internet-enabled device (phone, iPad, PC). Access allows students to “browse” the books online for up to 15 minutes (without checking out), or you can check out your book just as you would any print format book. The Ebook will automatically be returned in 14 days. Checking the book out ensures that you can access the book online at anytime, or you can download it for reading later in Follett’s offline reader.
Students 4th through 8th grade have Ebook accounts. Also, check out this video for DESTINY QUEST!
