Destiny Library Manager is a centralized K–12 library resource management tool that helps K–12 libraries in St. Clair County work more efficiently, while creating engaging and collaborative learning environments that promote and support student achievement.
Destiny combines library circulation, cataloging, searching, reporting and management into one centrally installed school library software system hosted by St. Clair County RESA.  Destiny Library Manager promotes greater student and faculty use of library resources.  Student and faculty will enjoy the familiarity of the browser based system and the ability to access a wide variety of library resources and content wherever they are:  classroom, at home, or wherever there is an internet connection.
