Print Resources

Media Center Books:

If your child has a book checked out from the media center, this will also show on their Destiny account. Destiny is the software we use for book check out.

Media Center book check out follows the students throughout their time in SMCPS. If they lose a book or forget to return a book, it comes up in their Destiny account until the book is returned or until the fine is remedied. All schools send out emails to students and parents/guardians periodically to let them know what is checked out and/or overdue.

Classroom Instruction:

Every child in SMCPS uses some type of resource or textbook in their classes. These come in the form of textbooks and consumables.

A consumable is a resource that students write in. These are workbooks. 

Depending on your child’s teacher their consumables may stay in the classroom, be kept with the student and transported to and from class, or be kept at home. A consumable is treated the same as any other resource and is checked out to the student. However, this will not get returned at the end of the year. This stays with the student. If he or she loses it, there is a replacement cost based on the cost of the book.

A textbook will have an SMCPS barcode. This is typically found on the top cover and is about 15 digits in length. This is checked out and is the responsibility of the student as well. 

How do I know what is on my child’s account?

They can check Destiny, which is our library resource management system. If they log in they will be able to see what they have checked out in their name, just as you would from the public library.

To login to Destiny, you would first go to the Destiny website for the school your child attends.
