  • Welcome back!

    Posted by Lisa Chapman on 8/17/2019

    Welcome back to school!  I hope you spent lots of time reading this summer! Remember to use the Destiny link to the left to access all the great web sites we use at school during the year. See my prior posts below for details about:

    New Flipster e-magazines
    Mackin Via e-books
    Home access instructions for OneDrive
    Hour of Code links

    Don't forget to use scdiscus.org (link to the left) for all of your research needs!  You should not need a password as long as you are accessing it from a computer in SC.  If you do find you need the password, come see me in the library!

    I look forward to seeing everyone in the library this year!!

  • Flipster Magazines

    New E-magzines!

    The library just bought three e-magazine subscriptions from Ebscohost, accessed through Flipster. You can find the link for on the Destiny home page. Look for Flipster under the Library Resources heading on the left hand side.

    The titles include: Hightlights, Ranger Rick and Ask 

    These subscriptions are unlimited access, unlimited users, so students can all use the magazines at the same time!

    At BES no username or password is needed. For home use:

    Username: belvedere  Ask Mrs. Chapman for the password to use from home!
