Welcome to the CTCS Library Page!
We are open Monday - Friday from 8 a.m.-4 p.m.
Library books are due two weeks after they are checked out. If a student needs additional time with a book, we are happy to renew it for them.
Preschool teachers check out books that go along with the unit being covered in class. Kindergarten students may check out one book at a time and these books remain in their classroom. 1st-6th grade students are allowed two books at a time to take home with them. Secondary students may check out materials for an entire grading period without penalty. However, once that grading period is over, these materials must be returned before new materials may be checked out.
Overdue, Lost, or Damaged Books
No fines are charged for overdue books. However, students may not check out new books if they have an overdue. Once a book is 30 days overdue, it will be considered lost. At that time, replacement fees will be billed to the parent's RenWeb account. Please note that all replacement fees are final. Fees will not be refunded if a book is found and returned at a later date.
All library materials must be returned at the end of the school year before report cards and final grades will be sent home.
Birthday Book Club
Our Birthday Book Club is a way for you to celebrate your child's birthday by donating a book to the CTCS Library in honor of your child's special day. The book you select will have a personalized bookplate in it and your child will be the very first person to check out the book.
Order forms are sent home at the beginning of each month. Order forms for summer birthdays will go home in May. Books are presented to students the last week of the month.
Reading Counts is the reading incentive program that we use for our 2nd through 8th grade students. Reading Counts is a lexile based independent reading program by Scholastic. Reading Counts combines reading practice and software-based reading assessment. Students acquire points as they successfully take quizzes through the program. With these points, students earn special prizes and rewards. Prizes and reading requirements vary according to grade level.
