How do I access the library’s digital audio books or eBooks from my computer?
Access the Library catalog, Destiny Discover, from the ORHS Library page.
Login to the catalog before you begin your search. Students, you will use your regular ORHS username and password. Teachers, use your regular username and the special password the library assigned you for this purpose; please call the library if you aren’t sure what that is.
Search the Destiny catalog for a particular title if you know what you are looking for. Digital audio books and eBooks will all have an “open” button under the title of the book. Click the “open” button to begin listening or reading.
Or, scroll down the page and click on “see all” to see a list of all eBooks or audio books if you want to see all the titles available in our library.
When you close book, it will automatically be put “back on the shelf” and be ready for the next person to use. It can take 15-30 minutes for this to happen, though.
How do I access the library’s eBooks or digital audio books from my phone?
Download the Destiny Discover App for free from your favorite app store.
Sign in with our state and school name, then your regular school username and password. Once signed in to it, the App will bring you to an eBook and digital audiobook interface. You can also use the search feature (bottom of the page) to search for eBooks and digital audiobooks (limit with the upside down triangle to the left of the search bar.) You can choose to either “read” the eBook or “checkout” the book. Checking it out prohibits anyone else from reading it, so please only check it out if you know you will read it. eBooks and digital audiobooks will be automatically removed from your account and returned to the library after 15 school days.
How long can I read/listen to an audio book?
If you’re listening or reading on your computer, as soon as you close the browser, the book will be returned.
If you check out the book on your device with the app, you can keep the book up to 15 days.
Can more than one person listen to an audio book or read an eBook at once?
No. Only one person can listen to a particular digital audio book at one time. With some exceptions, most eBooks are also only available to one reader at a time.
