Access to Destiny® Cypress Bay High School Library Media Center Tammy NethertonLibrary Media Specialist
What is Destiny? Destiny is our online catalog. It allows you to see what our Media Center has available, what is checked out, and the return date. For videos, it allows you to see the running time as well as a summary of the movie, the rating, and other pertinent information related to that particular video. You may view Destiny from anywhere you have Internet access: from your classroom, home, etc. This will enable you to gather your materials and prepare your lesson plans ahead of time.
