Library

Welcome to the Holy Trinity Library!

library@htsdc.org

Though the library may be closed at the moment, we’re happy to work with you to get books into the hands of our HTS readers!

We’ll start a regular rotation of library check outs the week of October 12th.  Until then, if your child would like to check out a book, each out to the librarian directly using the Email above.

We have nearly 10,000 books in our collection, and you are welcome to search for your favorite titles using this link to our Library CatalogThere is no need to login, just click on the ‘Holy Trinity School’ link, then look for the catalog tab.

 

Our Current Upper School Challenge:

Digital Reading Resources

While I love physical books, I’d also like to highlight a few resources for accessing books on screens – anything to keep our kids reading!  For chapter books, The Libby App available through the DC Public Library allows kids to check out books on their mobile device.  Our returning US students should have a DC Public Library card (send me an email if you don’t know the number), or it’s easy to apply for a card online (even if you live in Maryland or Virginia). For picture books, BookflixTumblebooks and Trueflix are available with a DC Public Library card, and Epic Books is a free resource that provides hundreds of wonderful online options, without a library card.

Reading Lists Based on our House System:
We compile reading lists to celebrate the characteristics of our HTS Houses (we’ll add lists during each House Celebration day):
