Your library account is where you can find everything you’ve checked out at your school – textbooks, iPads, laptops, chargers, calculators, library books, etc. It is also where fines and fees are listed for lost or damaged items, including technology.
Go to Destiny Discover by visiting www.destinydiscover.com and using the drop-down menus to find your school. Or click on the Clever Portal on the ECSAD start page and look for the Destiny logo under Research/eBooks.
In Destiny Discover, click the "Login" link at the top right.
Once you're logged into your account, use the "My Stuff" drop-down menu to find out what you have checked out, what needs to be returned, any fines you owe, the status of the holds you've placed, and more!
This is where you'll see what is currently checked out to you, as well as their due dates. It is also where you can renew your materials.
If you are unable to renew online, please bring the item to the library desk for renewal.
This is where you'll see any charges you might have for lost or damaged items, including technology.
Fines also list books that are significantly overdue. The system thinks these very overdue books must be lost and is charging you for them. If you still have these items, please return them to the library to eliminate the lost fines.
This is where you can see the status of any holds you have placed. If a book you would like is in the DeLong library, place ask someone to help you locate it on the shelf. Please do not place a hold. If the book is already checked out by another student or is located in another library, you may place a hold on it. When your holds are ready, pick them up at the library desk. Items will be held for 10 days.
"History" allows you to see all the books you have previously checked out at the library...back to the start of Destiny Discover (July 2023).
"Favorites" shows you a list of the books that you have saved for future reference.
If you search for a book, the library doesn't have it, and you think we should, please let us know. We love to get book purchase suggestions!
When you are logged in when you search, your empty search results will give you a link to "wish" for it. This message goes to our staff, and we will consider the book for our next order.
All items get returned to your school library. Please bring technology to the library staff for check-in and don't place it in the book drops.
Yes, please do! Drop it off at your library, and it will be removed from your fines.
Cash or check payments are taken in your library. Checks can be made out to “ECASD.”
If you'd like to pay with a card, please log into your My School Bucks (lunch) account and pay for it there. That account will sync with the fines in your library account.
That is also through the library or My School Bucks, with the same steps as above.
The fine stays on your account until it is taken care of, and it may limit your ability to check out additional items from the library.
It is also emailed to your family and shows in your My School Bucks (lunch and school fees) account.
If payment is a significant hardship for your family, please reach out to your school counselor, and they will help you problem-solve a solution.
It is always an option to pay a little at a time on a fine until it is paid off.
