eBooks and Destiny Discover

eBooks!

 

Did you know that Kingsville Elementary has eBooks in our library’s collection? eBooks are electronic books that students can checkout and read on a variety of devices, such as desktops, laptops, mobile devices, and iPads. The checkout duration for each eBooks is three weeks.  After that time, the system will automatically return the book. There is no need to worry about remembering to bring back eBooks.  If you finish reading eBooks before the three week checkout period, you can easily return them early with one click.

Most students in grades 1-5 have been introduced to eBooks and learned how to access them in library class.  At home, the access will vary depending on the type of device you use.  

Basically, the two ways to access eBooks are:
1.  From a device that is connected to the internet.  (Directions below)
2.  From a mobile device by installing the Destiny Discover App.  Directions here.

To access from a connected device follow these steps:
1.  From the BCPS home page www.bcps.org, select BCPS One.
2.  Login to BCPS using BCPS student user id and password.
3. Select Digital Content.
4. Click and open Destiny Library Catalog.
5. Login (link in upper right corner of screen.)  Students must use their BCPS student user id and password. 
6.  Now you can preview, checkout, and return eBooks!
