- How can I check my library account?
Books are checked out for a two week period, but may be renewed.
A student will not be allowed to check out other books until all overdue books/materials have been returned.
If your child has a lost or damaged a library book, a replacement fine will be attached to their account. Fines should be paid through the front office.
If you find a lost book, please return it to the library and any related fines will be either reimbursed (if the fine was already paid) or deleted from your child's library account.
Students can check their library accounts from home to see what materials they currently have checked out by clicking on the big green Library Catalog button at the top of this page.
To navigate to the catalog, log in to your Clever account at my.nsd.org. Once in Clever, find the Destiny Discover tile under Library and Research.
Once in Destiny, follow these simple steps (if you enter through Clever, you should already be logged in to your library account):
Click on the "My Stuff" tab at the top of the page
Click on "Checkouts" to view your library account (here you can see what you currently have checked out, due dates, and HOLDS you have placed)
