The Library Media Center uses Destiny, a Follett software product, as its automated management system. Destiny provides TitlePeekTM, which gives students a chance to preview books on-line, and One-SearchTM, which lets students get information from the school library and the internet as a whole with a single search, and WebPath ExpressTM, which limits student searches to approved, grade-appropriate websites.  Destiny access is available to teachers and students at school and at home via internet access.
