Student Life » Library



The St. Charles School library serves to instill a love of reading.  The library offers students from TK to 8th grade access to a wide range of resources.  Resources are selected to support and enrich the curriculum.  Our library holds over 8,000 books in our online catalog.

Scholastic Reading Counts


Scholastic Reading Counts is an independent reading program used by St. Charles School that combines reading practice and software-based assessment.  Students can choose from thousands of popular and engaging titles, read the book, then take the corresponding quiz.  The program is aligned with the Lexile framework.  The vast majority of the books in the library have these quizzes available for our students.


To check if we have a quiz for your book or what the Lexile or reading level of your book is, just click on the Scholastic Reading Counts link below:
