Check Out Library E-Books!
Encouraging your children to read is now fun and easy! Gain access to library books from home. Follow these easy instructions on how to use the DSUSD e-books (Electronic Books) system from home, grandma’s house, or on a road trip.
Go to Desert Sands Unified School District website (www.DSUSD.US). On the homepage listed under “Parents/Students Resources” you will click on “Follett Destiny Library” and then select “Johnson Elementary School”.
On the top right corner of the screen you will then click on “Login” and then “Log in using Destiny” and sign in using your First.Last name as your user name and your Student ID number as your password. If you do not know your Student ID number, it can be found on your report card. Staff must use their District ID number for their password.
Once you are signed in, click on “Destiny Discover” on the left side of the screen.
You will then scroll down to the “E-Books” and click on “See All”. Scroll through the e-books to see what is available. You may also use the filters to sort by author, subject, series or reading level. Some e-books come to us from KKMC and might be higher levels, so check the reading and interest level.
Click on the book. Now you can click open and read it right away without even checking it out or just to find out more about it. If this is the book you want, click “Check Out”.
Read every day to finish it in two weeks. E-Books are automatically checked back into the library after two weeks. You can check out up to three e-books at a time. If you go to your “Book Bag” (top right) to see what books you have checked out, you will also see a spot marked return. Click “Return” to check the book back into the library before the two weeks are up if you are finished. Then go to “Collections” and click on “e-books” to search for more books to check out.
From tablets or phone search for the “Brytewave K-12 app” to check out books on other devices! Choose “California” then type in Desert Sands and go down the list and click on your Johnson Elementary. Then use the same username and password! Read eBooks from anywhere!!
