Looking for Accelerated Reader?

You're at the library. Looking for a book to read for school. The books you planned to get are all checked out. After looking for what seems like forever, you finally find something that's caught your eye. But then the fear strikes. What if there isn't an Accelerated Reading Quiz for this? Never Fear! In the Children's Reference section, we have a few Accelerated Reader lists from local schools. If we don't have your particular school, you can look up books on AR BookFinder. You can type in titles of books and find out if an AR quiz exists. This won't tell you if your school owns the particular quiz, but you'll be able to rest easy and enjoy your book!

Wow! Multicultural Books!

Are you interested in fairy tales and legends from other countries? Are you a teacher or a parent looking for multicultural resources to share with children? Are you a student who's assigned to read a book about someone different from you? Worlds of Words is a great resource to start your search! You can find books based on world region, age level, or genre. There is also access to other great multicultural resources. Don't be discouraged by the fact that because this database is made available through the University of Arizona, CPL may not own every book listed. We can often request items for you through interlibrary loan (ILL).

To Be Read

I recently 'stumbled' upon Goodreads and added it to my list of websites for TBR [To Be Read] suggestions. Of course, that's the whole idea of this blog, so when a request for historical mysteries writers came up, these authors immediately came to mind: Alys Clare, Peter Tremayne, Margaret Frazer, Ariana Franklin, and Alan Gordon.
