Library Home


What’s new?  Students are making summer reading book clubs with our resources. Our new library collection interface is connected from our menu here, and the instruction below helps you get oriented. Our patrons are making sure they have our Washington Post username and password for online access as well as the summer reading assignments connected at HBW’s homepage. This is a great time of the year to enjoy e-books and audiobooks since our collection is on the way to our new home at The Heights Building. Keep reading!

Take a look at the new interface for the library’s catalog.  Use Destiny Discover to browse and search for books.  I-Pad users should download two new apps:  Destiny Discover (for the catalog) and Destiny Read (the app we use to read the e-books that are housed in the Follett E-book collection.  (Your MackinVia app opens only the e-content of the Mackin Collection.)

The graphic displays the appearance of the new catalog called Destiny Discover so that students can see the search box at top and book covers in three rows: Audiobooks, E-books, and newest books.

Can you guess where each call number is shelved?  Hint:  look at the top and the bottom of each spine label!
