SDPBC Library Media Services


The Department of Library Media Services supports all public school libraries throughout the district by providing resources, funding, and professional development.

Library Media Services partners with community non-profit organizations to connect students with additional literary experiences.

Library Media Services sponsors the annual Battle of the Books competition.

All District schools have a Library Media Center to provide equitable access to print and electronic resources for student use in academic and leisure learning.

The Destiny Web Catalog is available 24/7 from any Internet connected computer at home or at school. The Destiny Library Web Catalog lets you access electronic books and browse all the resources at your school. Electronic resources, including the Destiny Web Catalog and MackinVIA collection, can be accessed through the student portal or through the Learning Tools site.  Check with your school Library Media Specialist for the password to access these resources outside of school. Library Media Services works in close collaboration with the municipal and public libraries in Palm Beach County to extend resources to students beyond the school day.
