Check out the awesome new features on our catalog--designed to make using Accelerated Reader and the Lexile Framework even easier for you and your students! Now, item records for most children's book titles available through our library will include the book's AR Reading Level, AR Interest Level, AR Point Value and Lexile Level (if appropriate), making it a cinch to see if the title fits your student's needs. These features are available on both the LS2 (the big generic search box you see when you open the library's webpage) and the Classic Search catalog.
Try searching for Mary Pope Osborne's Dolphins at Daybreak. Click on the new "Browse Virtual Shelf" button to see other books in this series that are on our shelves or can be downloaded from our website. Click on the "Add to List" button to add this title to a list that you create using your library card and PIN. This means students can keep track of the books they are reading and can quickly access that list and even print it.
Wait! What's this in the upper right hand corner? "Reading Levels"? Click on it. You can now search for titles AVAILABLE IN OUR LIBRARY that match your student's particular AR Reading Level or Lexile Measure. How great is that!? No more jumping between our library catalog and AR BookFInder or Lexile's website! And no more, "Oh, I'm sorry. Our library doesn't have that book." This is pretty big!
As always, if you'd like more information about using our catalog, please don't ever hesitate to stop by, call or email. We hope these new features will help make learning--and life--a little bit easier for you and your students.
