My name is Danielle Pelas. I am the school librarian at Belle Chasse Academy. The Belle Chasse Academy school library media center continues to grow. We are very excited to offer our students a choice of over 25,000 books, 175 audio books, and a variety of magazines. For our teachers, we offer over 1,000 professional books/videos, and a variety of DVDs. There is something for everyone at the BCA library!
To encourage our students to read, we keep our library stocked with popular series and books by favorite authors. We do our best to keep our non-fiction section current as well as interesting, and we continue to add new books throughout the school year. Students are taught to use our web-based catalog, Destiny, to virtually browse our shelves from any internet-connected computer, and to make lists of books they’d like to read in their AR (Accelerated Reader) levels.
Come join us after school Mondays through Thursdays for our Library After Hours. On these days the library remains open until 4:30 pm. Students who want a quiet place to do homework, need to use reference materials or other library resources for projects, want to take an AR test, or who just want to look for a good book will be able to utilize the library at this time. Parents are welcome, too! Come see what the BCA library has to offer you.
