Ridley School District Libraries: Destiny and/or Destiny Quest

Ridley School District Library List

Destiny vs Destiny Quest:

Ultimately, both Destiny and Destiny Quest are the same thing: The online card catalog for our Libraries.

Destiny is used primarily by Librarians and Library Paraprofessionals to check in/check out books, etc. You can also search across libraries for titles of books, and book availability.

Destiny Quest is used primarily by students and teachers to find books, create wish lists, etc.
