The Great Western library is an integral part of our school. Not only is it home to thousands of books and resources for students, parents, and teachers, it also has chromebooks for student learning.
The library is open 8:00am to 4:15pm daily during the school year.
What about finding books on weekends? We have you covered! Students are able to check out ebooks, audiobooks, and interactive books online 24/7 using Destiny Discover. They will also be able to see the reading levels of any of our online items.
Please click the Destiny Discover box below and select Great Western when a new tab opens. Destiny Discover will open automatically. Your student will know their login information, but if help is needed, contact our school librarian, Sarah Phipps.
Accelerated Reader is a program Great Western teachers use in their classrooms. Teachers have their students do Star Reading to find their reading levels. The students then check out books at their reading level in the library. The books are color coded according to level making it faster and easier for students to check out books at their comfortable reading level. Once the student reads the book, he or she can take an AR quiz in the classroom to earn points towards their grade level's reading goal and to earn awards.
Your student can take tests through the Accelerated Reader link in Clever.
