Destiny Library & Resource Manager

Our newest additions are the Destiny Library & Resource Managers. These programs offer students and parents an online gateway into Bowman's Library. Students can search for books from any campus computer, Chrome Book or at home. Using the Destiny Quest feature, Destiny can suggest age and reading-level appropriate books for your student. By logging into Destiny from home, parents can also see what books their students have checked out, when they are due & which Chrome Book is checked out to them. Click on Destiny to access our online Card Catalog.

Accelerated Reader Programs

Accelerated Reader and STAR Reading serve as two core technology components in our school's literacy curriculum. Accelerated Reader and STAR Reading are used in all 1st through 7th grade classrooms.

Accelerated Reader focuses on testing student's comprehension ability by providing summary tests for virtually all grade level appropriate books. For more information on how your student utilizes AR in his or her classroom, please ask your student's teacher.

STAR Reading is a diagnostic test to help teachers identify each student's individual reading level. This helps both your student and his or her teacher by providing specific data to recommend appropriate reading level books to further develop literacy skills and promote the love of reading.

Home Connect is a tool for parents to see how their students are doing in Accelerated Reader. Click on the apple & log in with your students user name & password.

AR BookFinder is a tool you can use from any device that has internet access. This will tell you if a book has an AR test or not & what the Reading Level is. This will help you determine if a book you are buying or checking out of the Auburn Library is in your students AR Reading Range.
