Library Resources


Reading Material

Books, of course!  Both fiction and non-fiction are available.  Ebooks are available via the Silva Ebooks link on the left.  Your user name and password are the same as your Office 365 login information.  See Ms. Roman in the library if you have any questions.  Books can be checked out for three weeks.  Reference books are available for in-library use.  (Limit 4 items at a time.)


Databases—search general and academic periodicals for the most up-to-date trustworthy resources. See the librarian for your password to access the databases from home.


The library has 23 computers w/2 printers available for student use.  Please use good judgement and only print what you need. (Note: library computers are not on the CCTE network.)

Library Services

Book Hold

Is the book you want always checked out? Put a hold on it and you will be notified when it is returned to the library. You will have three days to pick up holds before they are returned to the shelves.  Submit your request via the "Contact Me" link on the left (include title and author's name) or in person at the circulation desk.


Inter-Library Loan

Need a book that we don't have? Request a book from another library in the district. Books usually arrive 3-5 days after you submit your request and can be checked out for up to three weeks.  Submit your request via the "Contact Me" list on the left (include title and author) and you will be notified when your book arrives. You can also submit requests in person at the circulation desk.
