Media Center Resources
Destiny Discover is our school's library catalog. This is where students can find available books and eBooks from anywhere! Right now, we are delivering physical books to students when they are in the building or providing curbside pick-up while on remote status. eBooks can be checked out directly from Destiny! Watch this video that Ms. Boyle created to place a hold or check out an eBook. Also, check out book recommendations on our Virtual Book Shelf and Book Blog. There is a shortcut to Destiny on our main Library Media Center page. All physical books are quarantined for a minimum of 72 hours and cleaned before being reshelved or checked out to another student. Happy reading!
PPLD Power Pass is another option to get more books! The Pikes Peak Library District has partnered with Colorado Springs School District #11 to provide our students with access to online research databases, free live homework help, eBooks and Audio books, movies & music, coding and STEAM activities and so much more! Students can also check out up to five physical resources at PPLD locations. There is a shortcut to PPLD on our main Library Media Center page. Students use their network username and 4 digit birth month and day.
