Destiny Quest and Student Logins

Screen Shot 2012-12-30 at 8.05.06 PMPart of the Library & Technology Center's program is to ensure that students have access to the library's resources 24/7 and to teach students to be responsible and effective digital citizens. Giving students their own logins to Destiny Quest does both of those beautifully.

Destiny Quest is where students can search the Pine Glen library catalog and, with a login, they can now manage their own library accounts. In addition, Destiny Quest is a social networking site where students can be a part of a reading community online. Students in grades 3 and up are set up with their own logins and are given instruction on how to use Destiny Quest and how we expect them to behave online in a social network.

However, if there are parents out there who would like to have access to their children's library accounts who are in grades K-2, send me a quick email and I can set up an account for your child.
