So, what's the question? If the question is if the sentence is correct, then the answer is no; there are several mistakes.

"The books are English book which I checked from the library."

There are several problems with the sentence. First, number agreement -- both the subject and object should agree in this sentence. "The books are English books ..." or "The book is an English book ...".

 

Next, the correct usage is either "borrowed from the library" or "checked out from the library".

 

Finally, "which I checked out from the library" is a restrictive clause. As such, it requires a comma before the clause.

 

"The books are English books, which I checked out from the library."

 

An non-restrictive clause -- where no comma is required -- can also be used. And in this case, may better express the writer's intent.

 

"The books are English books that I checked out from the library."
