New! Click here for a video tutorial on accessing Follett Destiny!

Students and staff of Central School can easily download AUDIO and eBOOKS from the Central CLC to their iPad, laptop, or any device.
1. Click on this link to access Destiny Discover from any device.
2. Click on login in the upper right hand corner to login to Destiny Discover with your username=CLC code and password (Please see Mr. Smolka if you need your username or password).

IMPORTANT, you must login to Destiny Discover in order to have access to electronic resources. 

Once you are logged in scroll down until you see the ribbons for eBooks or Audio books.  You can click on a cover to check out that title, or click on see all to the right of the ribbon to see all of our offerings. 

Please note that when you do click on a title, if it is available you will see the option to open the book as well as to checkout the book.  If you choose open, it does not check the book out, it simply allows you to read it at that time.  Once you close the session the book is available for others to read or checkout.  If you click on checkout the book is yours for 14 days and will be returned automatically.  To access any previously checked out ebooks click on the three horizontal lines at the top of the screen and go to checkouts in the menu that opens.
