Accelerated Reader

Accelerated Reader is a reading program that encourages children to read a book or have it read to him/her.  Students are then able to take a computerized quiz at school which will assess their comprehension of the book.  The child will immediately receive a score.  By answering 60% or more of the questions correctly, your child will receive points based on the length of the book and its reading level.  

A library is NOT a luxury but one of the necessities of life.                                 - Henry Ward Beecher
