FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Newton, NC, January 18th, 2016 – Newton-Conover City Schools has chosen Follett Destiny Library Manager to manage its media center and library resources to help make its schools more efficient and effective at supporting active student learning.
The leading library management software for PreK-12 schools and districts, Follett Destiny Library Manager provides students and teachers with convenient single sign-on access to multiple resources from anywhere in the school district and from home on any web-connected device, including tables and smartphones.
Newton-Conover City Schools believes Follett Destiny Library Manager is a cost-effective solution that will provide our students and staff with universal, cloud-based access to digital resources, as well as making it much simpler to search the variety of texts and materials available for checkout by students and staff. Beyond this, Follett Destiny also affords Newton-Conover Schools the ability to conduct inter-library loans between schools, if a specific school does not have a book or resource that a student is looking for.
“Utilizing Follett Destiny, our students and teachers can now seamlessly search and access all print and digital content from just one location with a single sign-on through the Destiny portal,” said James Frye, Newton-Conover spokesman. “That includes all of our district’s library resources, such as eBooks, digital databases, and content-rich and safe websites. We could not be more pleased.”
In use at more than 50,000 preK-12 schools nationwide, Follett Destiny Library Manager went live at the beginning of January.
