Limit Access to Reading Materials in Destiny Discover

In D20, we acknowledge that parents make the best decisions for their children. To support your reader with increased family support in selecting great books, see the strategies below for searching, advanced searching, and creating Destiny Collections as a family. Parents and guardians may also grant/limit their child’s access to reading materials as they see fit.

Limit Access to Young Adult Titles

Contact your school librarian and request a note in your student's patron file to block access to YA titles. The note will be visible to anyone helping at the circulation desk. The student will be allowed zero checkouts listed as young adult titles. If your student wants to check out a YA book, contact the librarian to give permission for your child to check out that specific YA book. This allows checkout of YA titles with guardian approval only.

Block Access to All Titles

Contact your school librarian and request a note in your student's file to block all titles. The note will be visible to anyone helping at the circulation desk. Students can still check out textbooks and devices, but all library materials will be blocked in Destiny's Library account. A note will be placed in your child's patron account stating this limit is at family request and the date you requested this.

Interest Level and Searching in Destiny Discover 

(Includes Filter for Intended Audience/Maturity)  

Interest Level  

Parents know each child is unique in their interests, abilities, challenges, and maturity. Interest level reflects content of interest to a wide range of children in an age or grade range. As interest level ranges increase, so does text complexity and higher vocabulary. For this reason, classic literature or science/technology books, for instance, may be categorized in a higher “interest level” even in the absence of sexual or violent (mature) content. Interest level generalizations may or may not fit the needs and interests of your child. Your engagement in the book selection process ensures rich conversations and a love of learning for your child.  


  1. Search by title, author, or topic using the white search box at the top of the page. Click the magnifying glass to the right of the search box to enter your search terms.  

  2. Narrow your search by format using the “any” dropdown to the left of the search box. Use this to find print, audiobooks, and ebooks in the collection.  

  3. Use the Advanced Search tool to the right of the search box to add filters to your search. It looks like three horizontal lines with little circles.  

    • Filter by interest level by adding preferred grade levels to beginning and ending interest level drop-downs.  

    • If you know your student’s reading level, you can search by Lexile level.  

    • Experiment with different key words and interest levels to find books that are just right for your child!  

Create a Destiny Collection Together: Connect Your Child to Great Books!
