• Destiny Discover- Our Online Catalog

    Destiny

    Using the Destiny App:

    1. Download the Destiny Discover app and works well with most of our e-book platforms.  Students can search the catalog for books and ebooks.  Once they log in, they can also look to see what books they have checked out and so much more.  
    2. Please also look at the Lightboxes. These are GREAT interactive books.
    3. To log-in, students will use their 6-digit ID number as their username, and their password will be their normal password login for Google.
    4. For ebooks - When prompted, they will need to add their e-book logins.  They will need to ask their teacher or the library staff for them.  These include books from Sebco, Mackin, and others.  Their SORA/Overdrive password is the same one they log into Destiny with.
