Huntsville Elementary School Media Center

Destiny is the name of our district's patron access software.
Destiny provides:
  • library catalog (search for books)
  • links to websites used with classes in media center
  • online reference short cuts
When users are logged in, they can:
  • see current check outs and renew books they are still reading that have become, or are close to becoming, overdue.
  • place holds on books they have been waiting to read.
  • create resource lists for projects.  These lists can also be converted to a Sources Cited page.
  • rate books that they have read on a scale of 1 to 5 stars.
  • write book reviews for books that they have read.
  • search for books via DestinyQuest (visually engaging search portal) and see at a glance, the books most recently added to the media center collections.

(accessible at school and at home--If prompted, use the password that is on your Master Card.
