Destiny Discover: Online

Catalog and eBooks


Welcome to the

Chase Library!


All students visit the library on a weekly basis for 45 minutes.  During this time, students learn various aspects of information literacy skills such as accessing, using and evaluating multiple types of information.  This includes fiction and nonfiction books, reference resources and magazine articles.  In addition to print resources, students learn about digital resources such as databases, websites and library catalogs.  

Students also select a book to read that is just right for them during their library class. A just right book is a book that is comfortable for the reader, interesting, engaging and the reader will know the meaning of most of the words on the page. Our goal is to help students develop into effective users of information and ideas as well as life-long readers and learners!
