St. Ann School Library

The Sister Eileen Memorial Library was dedicated in 2000. The library's collection includes approximately 5,000 volumes. There are reading materials available for all students, primary through junior high. Kindergarten through grade 6 has a weekly scheduled library period. Junior High has scheduled library time, also, to be used as needed.

The main focus of our library is to get students reading. The library provides a calm, quiet, inviting space for students in the midst of their busy day. Students have the opportunity to browse the shelves, find a book, and relax and read. And of course, we love to talk about favorite books and authors!

The Accelerated Reader program is for students in grades 3rd, 4th, and 5th. The goal of the program is to encourage students to read. There are over 2,000 books on the Accelerated Reader list, so students have a wide choice. The Accelerated Reader books are clearly marked for students' convenience. After reading a book, the students take a short quiz on a computer. The third and sixth graders test in the library, fourth and fifth graders test in their classroom. Points are awarded according to the student's achievement. Every grade level has its own point goal for each quarter. Rewards are given to students achieving their goal.

The entire library collection is now computerized. Every book is bar coded. Students will be checking out books, not by signing a card, but by scanning their bar code. This system will enable us to keep more accurate records, and to better serve the students.

We look forward to a "readingful" year!


The Accelerated Reader program has been very successful in motivating students to read and challenge themselves. Students select a book, read it, and take a comprehension test using the software provided. The more questions they answer correctly, the more points they receive.

Ask your child's teacher for more information on this program. Students may be required to get their teacher's approval before reading a book and being tested on it.
