Accelerated Reader Program

Now students, parents, teachers, and librarians can search for Accelerated Reader Books online! Visit the AR BookFinder to begin your search. You can search by title or author. You may also do an advanced search to search by ISBN, interest level, and other criteria. If the book is on the AR list you can find out what the reading level is and how many points it is worth. You can look in our online catalog to see if we have the book title and if it is available.  This currently works with Jamestown Elementary School's AR Program and Russell County Middle School's AR Program. Accelerated Reader made easy!
