St. Charles Borromeo School

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. 


Students visit once a week with their class to check out books.  The library is a welcoming space for students.  There is weekly story time reading for grades TK through 2nd


We welcome students, parents, and faculty to check out our collection of fiction and non-fiction books. 


Checkout Policy

How many books can my child check out at a time?
Grade TK 1 book
Grade Kinder 2 books
Grade 1-2 3 books
Grade 4-8 4 books
When are books due?
Students may have books for two weeks. They also may be renewed if needed.
What happens if a book is overdue?
A student must return his/her overdue book before checking out another one. 
What happens if the book is lost or damaged?
If a book is lost, you may either replace the book with an identical copy or may pay for the book and we will order a replacement copy. 




Parents help in many different ways at the library, from shelving books, working the circulation desk, reading to the children at story time, and helping with the new book processing. If you are interested in becoming a library volunteer please contact Diann Corral at


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:

2020 Spring Scholastic Book Fair Results


Our 2020 Spring Book Fair was successful!  We earned $6,366.32 in Scholastic dollars.  We were able to use our Scholastic Dollars to purchase books for the teachers from their wish lists, books for our school library, book shelves, bean bags, story time mats/cushions, and carpets for the classrooms.


Thank you to the many volunteers who helped with the Scholastic Book Fair.
