Library

 

The ACHS library has over 4700 books.   Many classic novels were included in the collection in order to prepare the

students for college.  In a recent remodelling, 2300 books were discarded because of out-of-date information, and

damage caused by mildew or misuse.   A list will follow for those interested in rebuilding and contributing to this part

of our collection. 

 

The ACHS Library has a newly created website which can be found @ http://achslib.weebly.com/

The AR site (renaissance learning)is located at https://hosted144.renlearn.com/208487

The Destiny QuestLibrary site which searches the school catalogue from anywhere (home included) and has many

special features (like only get books in your reading range):  http://alturl.com/xudd8

You can use it as a guest or log in using your AR log in.  If that doesn’t work, email me at

Thinking about DONATING MONEY for BOOKS?  Here are some suggestions. 

Ascension Catholic High Library is in need.  The following list includes the books wedon’t have that are on

the College Board’s suggested list of books to be read before college.  The entire list can be seen at http://wcpscollegeandcareer.weebly.com/uploads/7/7/1/1/7711918/college_board_recommended_books.pdf

The list has been adjusted to show which books we have (marked with the shelf address), the yellow highlighted

books are those covered in English classes, and those with the turquoise highlighted color and price are the ones we need.  

 

Please feel free to either donate a book that is sturdy and in good condition (and can stand circulating) or send a small donation to cover the cost of one book.  You can ask the book be labeled in your family’s name, or a memorial to someone who has passed away.  If you don’t care which book, simply state that when you send your check.
