All Saints Destiny Quest /Follett App
Destiny Discover offers All Saints students a collection of Ebook titles. Students can access these Ebooks on any internet-enabled device (phone, iPad, PC). Access allows students to “browse” the books online for up to 15 minutes (without checking out), or you can check out your book just as you would any print format book.
