We're Using Destiny Quest!

Our online catalog features a social/visual component called Destiny Quest.

Once students are logged into their Destiny Quest account, the system allows them to:
  • search the online catalog
  • place books into virtual bookshelves--Now Reading, Have Read, Want to Read
  • send and receive friend requests from other DCG students with accounts
  • recommend books to friends
  • view similar read-alikes
  • write book reviews
Recently, all students in Grades 3 - 5 at Dallas Center Elementary created and then accessed their Destiny Quest accounts to see everything it has to offer. On the QuestHome page, students can see the Top 10 books based on current checkout statistics, browse different public lists for reading suggestions, and see what books have most recently been added to the collection.

To access Destiny Quest at home, please refer to this bookmark:

Dallas Center Elementary students used Destiny Quest during library lessons earlier in October. Be sure to ask them about it!
