WRS Library uses Destiny software to catalog and maintain our school library collection. Students in grades 3-8 can log on to the Destiny Portal website using their Accelerated Reader username and password. A link to Destiny Portal is located on the Wayne County School District website and the WRS page (accessible through the WCSD website) under Quick Links. Students can check their library account for overdue books, check for fines, and search for and place books on HOLD through the Destiny Portal. 


Students can also access Destiny Quest on the Destiny Portal. Click the link below to watch a short video on how students can use Destiny Quest to search for books, ebooks, and other resources in our library.
