Accelerated Reader

We are happy to help supplement your child’s AR reading. Please read the following to understand how AR works in the public library setting.

-Our books are not organized by AR level like they are in school libraries. All of our fiction materials are organized by age group and author, and nonfiction by age group and Dewey Decimal System.

-Some of our older materials are marked with AR spine labels, some are labeled in the catalog or inside the book, but most of our books are not identified as AR at all. That doesn’t mean they do not have an AR level, but you would need to look them up in Accelerated Reader Bookfinder to find out.

-If you can’t come in to search for books that your child will enjoy that fit into their range, you can search our catalog from home and fill out a Curbside Request with specific titles. Click here and select Study Programs to search our catalog for AR levels and points.

-Our Grab Bags are not guaranteed to be a certain AR level, only a basic age and interest level.
