Destiny Discover Catalog

The Springhurst School Library Media Center serves as extension of the classroom, providing lessons, services, materials, and facilities which support and enhance the curriculum while enabling students to develop into independent learners. The library media program promotes an appreciation for literature and encourages students to read for both pleasure and information, contributing greatly to student literacy. Our main goal is for students to plant their literary roots by growing a love of reading.
