Find and Access Books Using the Library Catalog

Use the library catalog, which is called Destiny to search for books in the AHS library collection. Remember to login once you're on Destiny, so that your searches are limited to just the Annandale collection, and so that you can actually open and read any of the ebooks you find. 

Directions for logging in to our Destiny Library Catalog:

  • Click the link to the Destiny
  • Login using the button on the upper right of the page where it says "Log In." 
  • After clicking the Log In button you’re taken to another login page
  • Click where it says "Log in using your account with Fairfax County Public Schools" 
  • Enter your regular network login information
  • You should see the Destiny page again, but you should also see:
    • Hi, (followed by your name) 
    • Remember, if you don’t login,
      • you won’t be able to open the ebooks, and
      • all your searches will be for all FCPS libraries, not just Annandale's

Looking for digital books in the AHS collection?

Some of the best ebooks and audiobooks we have are accessible through logging into Mackin Via. When you click the Mackin Via link, you will need to login using your FCPS login credentials. You can also try this link and just enter your network login and you will be taken to the AHS Mackin Via catalog.

Some of our databases have ebooks as well.

Library Databases

All of our library databases require logins and passwords, which can be located in our Schoology (requires login) course


About Our Library

Our library offers a range of resources to meet the needs of our school community. We have an extensive collection of subscription databases and non-fiction resources that have been carefully selected to support the curriculum and students' research requirements, and a large fiction collection that both supports the curriculum and students' reading for pleasure

If Annandale HS doesn't have the book you're looking for, maybe another school will be willing to ILL (Inter-Library Loan) it to us for you.

All Fairfax County Public Libraries Catalog

If FCPS doesn't have the book you're looking for, maybe the public library does. If you find the book you want in the catalog, any library in the FCPL system will send that book to the local library you choose.
