Digging Up Destiny Discover

As a student or staff member of SCC you are cordially invited to use Destiny Discover for all your ebook and digital audiobook needs. Our mission is to help you grow, learn, and become awesome people and Destiny Discover is one tool that can help you do that.

What is Destiny Discover? -- Destiny Discover is our repository for the ebooks and digital audiobooks that are purchased for the SCC libraries. It also allows you to search everything the library owns (paper books, DVDs, physical audiobooks, equipment, etc).

How many ebooks and audiobooks are in Destiny Discover? -- Across the district there are over 2400 ebooks and 450 digital audiobooks available. We are adding new titles all the time so check back often.

Why would I want to read an ebook? -- Ebooks in Destiny Discover can be read on any device with an internet connection, either via a browser or the Destiny Discover app. Ebook services like Destiny Discover allow you to have hundreds of books at your fingertips without having to lug around paper books or visit the library to get/return them. Also, there are titles that the library only has as ebooks.

Why would I want to listen to a digital audiobook? -- Just like the ebooks, our audiobooks in Destiny Discover can be listened to on any device. Audiobooks allow you to multi-task; you can listen to a book while you drive, clean the house, or exercise. You can also do this on your own device without having to get CDs or a Playaway from the library.

So how do I get to Destiny Discover? -- There are two ways to find Destiny Discover.

  • Via a browser on any device. Visit gofollett.com and search for one of the schools at SCC. (There are also links to Destiny Discover on the library web pages or within regular Destiny at destiny.scc.k12.wi.us)
  • Via the app on an Apple/Android phone or tablet. You can get the free Destiny Discover app via the app store. Then you would search for one of the schools at SCC and login.

How do I login to Destiny Discover? -- Each student in grades 4-12 and every staff member should have an individual Destiny login. But we also have guest accounts for all three buildings, which will let you read/listen to items but will not let you check items out or download them. You can stop by the library or email me to find out what your login or the guest login is.

I have a suggestion for an ebook or an audiobook I would like to see on Destiny Discover. -- Great! You can email me suggestions, drop a list off in the library, or fill out the suggestion form on the library's "Read" page. I order throughout the year, so you never know when new items will be popping up.

Want to watch a video tutorial or have a printed handout? -- You can visit the Destiny Help page for more support. Or you can always stop in the library or email me!

Have a wonderful day!
