~ RCS CARD CATALOG ~
At RCS, we use a self-checkout station at the circulation desk. If your child happens to bring home a book that is above his/her reading level, feel free to send it back to school with a note attached, and it will be exchanged.
The digital card catalog only works on devices connected to RCS network and will not work from home.

What is Sora?
Sora is RCS's collection of digital library books. Your child may check out digital copies of library books to read at home. The books may be accessed via the weblink above or by downloading the Sora app on a tablet or phone. Your child's school username and password are used to log in to the account.
In addition, our school digital library is also connected to our local public library's digital library collection through the TN. R.E.A.D.S program.
Although students' accounts only allow them to access books classified as Juvenile (Children's books), these books are not part of the RCS Digital Library collection. These are the same books available to any juvenile user of the local public library digital collection. Contact your child's teacher if you do not want them to also check out library books from the public library.
Logging into Sora: Use your school username/password.
