Welcome to the St. Joseph Catholic School Library!

I hope all of our SJCS families are staying healthy and are happy to be back in school in-person. Students will be able to come to the library once a week to check out books. I will have a library lesson, an author focus, or an activity with all PK- 5th graders after they have checked out their books. The 6th, 7th, and 8th graders will be given opportunities to check out books each week as well and I am happy to help with any research projects.  This library page has been updated to act as your student's online library source. To the right you will find links to the following FREE web resources:


- A link to a apply for a digital library card from the Mesquite Public eLibrary                              (available to ALL RESIDENTS of Texas)
- Links to Garland and Richardson's Public eLibrary Webpage                                                          (must be a resident of these cities)
- TumbleBooks, Abdo Digital Bookshelf, and Audible                                                                         (free access for the next few months)
