Destiny is the OPAC ( Online Public Access Catalog ) that allows you to search for books, DVDs, audiobooks, ebooks, and even digital media that the district provides through all 8 of the Wilson libraries.

Your school may use the more colorful home screen called Destiny Quest by default, but you can "Exit Quest" (top right corner) if you prefer.  Exiting Destiny Quest also allows you to access more features and search options.
