"You can find magic wherever you look. Sit back and relax, all you need is a book." - Dr. Seuss
Welcome to the Phoenix Charter Academy Library! The library is a busy hub where any day of the week you will find students working on the computers, students in the children’s area reading, teachers meeting with families, or parents browsing curriculum or spending time.
If you cannot get into the library to see if we have the book you are looking for you can access Destiny Quest, which is our library cataloging system. It allows both students and parent to browse our library holdings, place holds, create resource lists, and renew materials.
Click on Phoenix Charter Academy. In the upper left hand corner choose “create account.” You will then see a space that states: “enter your last name” and “enter your bar code.” The last name will be the student’s official last name and the bar code is the student’s school ID number that can be found on their student ID card, or can be obtained from your teacher of record or any library staff. After login, you will get a page that looks like this.
At the top of the page there are several tabs including Quest Home, My Info, Advanced Search, and Visual Search. You can search for books and resources by clicking on the Visual Search or the Advanced Search Tabs. You can also type in a book or subject after the “Find,” then click on “Go.” If you click on the “My Info” tab at the top of the screen a new window will pop up that gives students/parents the option of viewing a student’s current checkouts.
“Reading Will Take You Places” is this year’s theme for our reading incentive program. Pick up your reading logs at the PCA Library or from your teacher. For each log completed, students win a small prize. For every 10 logs submitted, students will receive a book of their choice through Scholastic, and they will be entered into a drawing for a Barnes & Noble gift card. Ten gift cards will be awarded at the end of the school year.
Scholastic Book Catalogs are available at the PCA library. Scholastic book orders are a great way for you to get new books, CHEAP! Each order that you place also helps to buy books for our library and for our students. You can place your orders either through our library with a check, or online with a credit/debit card.
