Accelerated Reader

Our library is a proud supporter of the Accelerated Reader (AR) program, a computer-based tool that encourages independent reading. AR allows children to select books that match their reading level, then take a short comprehension quiz, earning points based on book difficulty and quiz performance.

AR Bookfinder:

To help locate suitable books, the Accelerated Reader Bookfinder tool can be used to find titles matching your child’s reading level.

By participating in Accelerated Reader, we’re fostering a love of reading and encouraging continuous learning.
