New Library System

FCPS is pleased to announce a new integrated library system. Destiny Discover manages not only all school library cataloging and circulation systems but supports student learning as well.

Students have Destiny Discover accounts and log in capability to access the catalog for books, eBooks, audiobooks, and online databases. 

New features include options for remote access to library accounts, student-authored book reviews, integrated searching across multiple resources, collaborative tools, and more. 

Library Fines

Does your student owe library fines? Please be aware that students are charged fines for missing library items. Encourage your student to return their items to the library before school, in between classes, during lunch or after school- tell them not to wait for their English teacher to bring them to the library.  

Please contact Mrs. Howard if you have any questions vjhoward@fcps.edu or 703-313-3790
