Accelerated Reader

Looking for Accelerated Reader books?  Find a list of books with tests on the AR Bookfinder website.  Once you find a title, search for the book in the Contra Costa County Library Catalog.  Volunteers are slowly tagging AR level's in the Library's Visual Catalog.  You can try out a search by typing: tag: "ar 5.0" - you can try put whatever level number for which you are looking in the 5.0 spot.  Please be aware that all levels are not yet in the Visual Catalog.  Thanks for your patience as we tackle this project!  You can now also use the advance search NoveList Plus to find AR books.  Check out the tutorial on how to do this!
