Library Media Center
The Villa Joseph Marie Library Media Center assists students in reaching their academic goals by exposing them to a wide variety of print and digital media. The primary aims of the Library Media Center are:
- To provide our students with the library materials and services most useful and meaningful in contributing to their intellectual, social, and spiritual growth.
- To provide opportunities through library experiences for students to develop helpful interests, to make satisfactory personal adjustments, and to acquire desirable social attitudes.
- To work with faculty in the selection and use of all types of library media materials that contribute to Villa's academic programs.
- To help students become skillful and discriminating users of print and audio-visual materials, the Internet, search engines, and social media.
Villa's Library Media Center is equipped with Destiny® Library Manager™, the leading library management software for K-12 schools and districts. Destiny provides access to enriched, educator-reviewed digital content and tools, including library titles, print and eBooks, that help our students and faculty find, share, and use print and digital resources. There are three Destiny resources to which students and faculty have access in order to facilitate this enhanced experience:
Individual Account: Each Villa student is assigned an individual account. Students may log in from any computer on campus for access to a virtual bookshelf.
Internet Access: Students also may access Villa's library resources remotely at https://vjmhsresources.follettdestiny.com.
App for iPhone and Android Devices: The Destiny Quest Mobile App provides mobile search capabilities that allow students to access library resources via an interactive interface with which they are familiar and comfortable.
