Welcome to the RTC Library!

Click on the above blue tabs to find library materials and websites to help ESL students learn English.  Most of the materials are in the 428 section of Media or Book Stacks in the library.

Students and college staff need a library card to check materials out of the RTC Library. The library card is free. 

Checkout Periods:

  • Most books = 2 weeks
  • Media (audio cassettes and CDs, videos, DVDs) = 1 week
  • Magazines and newspapers = 1 week
  • Reference books (special books) = in-library use only

Items may be checked out again, if more times is needed and there is no one waiting for it.

There may be fines and fines for late, lost or damaged library materials.
