Meet our Librarian
My name is Mrs. Callow and this is my 23rd year of having the privilege of being the Librarian at Bowman! All classes visit the Library each week to check out new books. We also enjoy a variety of other fun activities together such as:
- Puppets & stories for grades TK-2nd
- Curriculum read-a-louds, book reviews, book trailers & Library Skills for older students
- Accelerated Reader
- Book Fair
- Parent/Grandparent Volunteers
New This Year:
- Open at Lunch for 2nd-8th graders to read, work on homework & play games
- We received a Matching Grant which allowed us to add new eBooks to our Library for our students to enjoy
“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

Destiny Library Manager
Our school uses Destiny Library Manager to offer students and parents an online gateway into Bowman's Library. Students can search for books from any campus computer, whether on campus 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 and when they are due. 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.
