Book choice is changing!

 Do you remember this? I often remember it being accompanied by a “Shhhhhhhhhh”! It never moved, it only told us what was in our library, and it was kind of cumbersome to use.

The library catalog has come a long way! Our Destiny Quest catalog is a visual, customizable  gateway for our students whether they are researching or trying to find something that interests them. Students are able to see what reading materials we own, as well as what is available at other schools in the district. They are able to read reviews written by their peers. They are able to access age-appropriate, teacher & librarian collected websites.

The catalog is available 24-7, anytime, anywhere. It is used in the library as well as in classrooms and from home. There is usually no shushing allowed near students researching using Destiny Quest. It is but one tool used by our students in a collaborative world.

What can Destiny Quest do for you? Check out the “Resource Lists” section. We create all kinds of booklists for you to browse through. Looking for a great readaloud? Check there. Looking for great choices to support math learning? Look there. Interested in seeing something else? All you need do is ask! Take some time to play around with the catalog and see what your children are learning to use. Vist this link for more directions from our software provider on how to use various features. Happy searching!

    I have to say that I don’t miss the cumbersome card catalog. Destiny Quest is awesome.
