While all of our learning takes place virtually, we will use this page as our base for teaching and learning in the media program. It is our Virtual Media Center.

The library staff will provide an environment of safety, respect, and patience that aims to empower students to reach their fullest potential by creating challenging educational experiences.
Our mission is to provide an environment in which all individuals in the school community are empowered to become life-long learners and effective users of information, ideas, and technology.
The Travilah media program provides access to materials in all formats. Media staff strives to collaborate with faculty to integrate curriculum with information and technology literacy skills. By working with other educators, media staff foster competence and stimulate interest in reading and becoming life-long learners.
Student input was used to develop our "School Library Media Center Rules for Success"
Circulation of Materials for Students:
Destiny Media Center Catalog
Our Media Center Circulation program is Destiny. It is web-based and can be reached from home by going to https://destiny.mcpsmd.org/. You can use the Basic Catalog Search or the option for Destiny Quest in the left hand menu. As a guest you can search our catalog, make a list of books, and print it out. Students or staff can log in with their computer login and password to see what they have checked out, make lists of what they want to read, and rate the books they have read. This information is saved in the student’s account to use whenever they log in again. You can easily keep track of what is checked out to your student and when it is due back to the media center. They can search for information for reports and good books to read for fun. All students are able to access Destiny Library Manager 24/7. From home students have access to the features that are accessible once they login, i.e., creating resource lists, receive recommendations (from library staff or teachers), create book reviews, and view their account (see items checked out and due dates.)
Please use the Lexile Information sheet to search for books within a specific Lexile range.
If materials are returned to the media center in damaged condition, a letter may be sent to the student’s parents/guardians requesting payment for the materials or a replacement. We appreciate the cooperation of parents who help their children keep our library books safe, clean, and dry.
Student Computer Rights and Responsibilities:
Students acknowledge that they are aware of Travilah’s expectations for the educational use of technology. They are also making a commitment to be responsible users of technology.
As part of the effort to help students abide by the regulations, you can read MCPS Regulation IGT-RA and locate more information about Cyber Safety.
All students in Grades K-5 are asked to take time with their parents to openly discuss, understand, and commit to the guidelines for acceptable use of technology resources at school. We ask every student and their parents sign this Student Technology Contract.
Online Resources for Home Use:
Homework Resources are online resources that students may access from home.
Travilah also has additional resources. Please ask the media specialist for user names and passwords. All services are available for home use.
