 Destiny, the DHS media center catalog is online! You can search the catalog without logging in, however, you can do a lot more if you login using your computer username (ID#) and password as you do at school. The login button is located on the top right corner. Once you login you'll be able to...

  •  Use the catalog to create personalized, virtual bookshelves for books you have read, are now reading, or want to read in the future.  
  • Discover the top 10 most popular titles recently checked out by DHS staff and students.  
  • Check the new arrivals section for books that are new to our library.  
  • Students (and parents) can easily see what books they have checked out and when they are due.  They can even put a book on hold right from their mobile device and it will be waiting for them in the media center. 
  • Looking for a specific book? Search by keyword, author, or title.
