Media Center

GJCS use Follett Destiny Library Manager for managing their library resources. This solution not only allows librarians and administrators to keep thorough, real-time track of a library’s inventory and media assets, but also gives students a fun means of discovery and reading. Destiny Library Manager is a complete library management system that can be accessed from anywhere, 24/7, helping to strengthen the crucial bond between the library, the classroom, and home.

Each student has a unique username and password to access the system but you do not need to log into the system in order to search our inventory. By logging into Destiny however, students can create their own reading lists as well as other user specific items. The Library Media Specialist will supply students with their passwords and provide more in depth training on the system. Click on the link below to go to the GJCS Destiny site.

GJCS also uses Accelerated Reader (AR), which is a web based program that makes reading practice more effective and fun for every student.

It personalizes reading practice to each student's current independent level and uses books available in your home, the school or public library, and the classroom. AR's goal is to measure a students' reading comprehension on each book read. It builds a lifelong love of reading and learning.  Click on the link below to go to the GJCS Renaissance Place site.
