Department Information

                                                    

The CCHS Library / Media Center serves to support the curriculum, learning, and leisure reading needs of the students and staff.

Teachers reserve the room with its large tables, couches, cafe seating, and computers for whole class use.  In addition, study hall students visit the Center sometimes for computer work, collaborative study, or reading.

There is a large collection of fiction and nonfiction books for students and staff recreational reading..

Currently, the LMC is staffed by a part-time librarian and an aide, so the library is monitored from 8:00am - 4:00 pm daily.

We Have Audiobooks!

The LMC has numerous titles from the English department reading list available in audiobook format.  We have cassettes, CDs, and Playaways (mp3 format in its own player with headphones).  Great for reading along!  Here is our current list of titles, but watch for more coming:

Don't see the book you want?  Did you know you an check out and download digital audiobooks from the Chicago Public Library web site?  All you need is a Chicago Public Library card (available if you have a valid suburban card by just showing your card at any CPL branch) and a PC (sorry Mac users, not yet for you).  You can listen to the book on your computer, burn it to a CD, or listen to it on a PC-compatible portable device.  Some titles are even available in mp3 format to go right to your iPod.
