What Your Rudder Library Offers

We are here to help you!

Our Library Website

Please visit our library website and see all of the resources that are available. It can be found under Academics on the Rudder High School website or at the link below. Here are just a few items students and staff can access from our website:

  • view the Destiny catalog to learn what books we have available

  • see the library policies

  • sites for book reviews and where to go for help when deciding what to read next

  • sources for text art, digital photos and citing sources


Academic Databases

Our school has access to the Gale databases for students and staff to use. These databases provide accurate, valid information that students need for class assignments. To locate these databases, go to the Rudder High School website. The Library is under Academics. The databases are found under the Research tab on the Library Website. The usernames and passwords are located there as well. These are great resources and your students should be encouraged to use them when possible.

Print Books, eBooks & Audio Books

Our Rudder Library has over 13,000 print books for our students and staff. Students are allowed to check out three books at a time and staff members are not limited. We also have many eBooks and online audiobooks for our students and staff to use. Go to destiny.bryanisd.org and click on Rudder High School to get to our online catalog. Students will log in using the same information they use to log in to a computer at school. Staff members use the following:

username: firstname.lastname

password: your employee ID number

A how-to video can be found on our website.
