AR Lists

The Library has an extensive AR collection.  Every book in our juvenile collection that has an AR quiz level is marked with a sticker telling the reading level.  There is a list for each local school of the AR quizes belonging to that school that match the Library's books.  In addition, each AR book has a sticker in the front cover that tells whether each school has the quiz.
