Grade School Accelerated Reader Program

Looking for books that will fulfill your Accelerated Reader Requirements?  Look for the blue Accelerated Reader sticker on the spine of our Junior Books.

Tamaqua Public Library

Accelerated Reader

Check out the inside cover of our books! We are in the Process of writing the Book Level Value and AR Point Value on the inside page. As the Library gets in new books we will put a blue Accelerated Reader sticker on the spine and write the AR information inside in an effort to make finding a school book easier.

Not all of our books have been updated yet so donít let the lack of a sticker or AR information discourage you from choosing a book. We are also updating our patron computer system to allow you to search for AR books by book value and accelerated point value.

Feel free to print this page to use as a reference for the patron computer or just ask a librarian for help.

To look up a book:

Just go to the patron computer

Click Visual Search

Click Reading Programs

Click Accelerated Reader

Choose Level

By clicking one of the top categories you can organize your search (ie: click author for an alphabetized listing and you can find out if the Stephanie Meyer books are in your range)

If you want to search by a specific reading level with a desired point level:

Just go to the patron computer

Click Visual Search

Click Reading Programs

Click Everything at My Level

Enter Reading Level and Desired Point Value

Inside our book covers the following codes are used in keeping with the Accelerated Reader Program:

IL = Interest Level

LG (Lower Grades K-3) MG (Middle Grades 4-8)

MG+ (Upper Middle Grades 6 and up) UG (Upper Grades 9-12)

BL= Book Level AR Pts = Accelerated Reader Points

The Tamaqua Public Library is reporting the IL,BL, and AR Pts found on the Accelerated Reader Book site www.arbookfind.com We are not getting these values from your school library so please check with your own school to make sure you are meeting the requirements necessary for your program.
