    DATA BASE for Researching

    This year our library is fortunate to have two databases available for research. The library is thankful for both our School Site Council and district office for purchasing these valuable resources.  You will have access to Wagnalls Encyclopedia,  140 popular middle school magazines, 105,786 primary source documents, 40 newspapers US and International and much more. This can be accessed from home or at school and even on Ipads. Every ELA class was presented the information for using the databases and a handy card to access each one. Both databases can be accessed from our district library webpage Destiny Online Catalog.
