Welcome to Library with Mrs. Coyle
The All Saints Catholic Library is open! New modular furniture is on the way to create flexible seating options so that an entire class can safely use the library space. A mobile library service to delivery reserved HOLD books for students in 5th-8th grade will continue this year to provide remote book accessibility! There will be cleaning procedures in place aligned with CDC requirements. The library has evolved into a “dynamic” space always ready to move and change to support multiple strategies for academic success.

All Saints Destiny Quest /Follett App
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 5th through 8th grade have Ebook accounts. Also, check out this video for DESTINY QUEST!
Check Out the new books added to the collection. Students are very excited about getting their books, but in order for them to check out another book they must remember to bring back their library books by the due date.
K-2nd 1 Book –Due back in 1 Week
3rd – 8th 2 Books – Due back in 2 Weeks
Accelerated Reader Program
The Accelerated Reader Program is a computerized reading enrichment program. Students have the option to read a book and then take a computer quiz that is given in a multiple-choice format to assist in developing comprehension skills. Students will have remote access to take AR quizzes on campus and at home.
How Does The Library Facilitate The AR Program?
This year the library will initiate an optional reading program for 2nd-8th graders called “BookFlix”…Be A Binge Reader! The idea is to enter readers into a raffle prize drawing every two weeks for those students that take and pass at least one AR quiz during the allotted time period. One winner will be chosen from each grade 2nd-8th (not class) for a sanitized bookmark, special pencil, pen, etc. that has been quarantined in a plastic bag.
For further details, please see our Accelerated Reader Program information page.
