  • Biblionasium---Good Reads for Kids

    Posted by Marie Wardall on 1/2/2018 9:10:00 PM

    Biblionasium icon

    Third Grade students are learning about our Library Catalog-Destiny Discover. They are learning how to use the catalog to find books in the library by call number and where each type of book is located in the library.

    A new feature that was added to Destiny Discover is called Biblionasium. Biblionasium is a program that allows students to write reviews, rate books, recommend books and share books with other students. We are just getting started with learning the program so ask your third graders what they have been working on.
