Accelerated Reader

The Livingston Parish Library staff understand that Accelerated Reader (AR) is a priority for our patrons, and we are available to recommend and assist with finding level and points for AR books. Our staff is very knowledgeable and can help you find what you need for your reading level.

Livingston Parish Public Schools subscribe to the entire AR collection, and almost all books in our juvenile and young adult collections are AR. However, the AR collection has books that your local library may not own, or they may be checked out. Therefore, the easiest way to find AR books in our library’s collection of books, audio, and e-books, is to select the books first then check their AR points and levels.

How to find AR books:

Look at the library’s collection. Find all our book and e-books materials through our catalog (including print books, audio books, and e-books).

If your book has an assigned AR point value, it will be listed just under the author’s name in the search results. If you click on the title of the book, you’ll be able to view its AR reading level, AR interest level, and AR point value.

If you want a specific book or e-book and our library does not own it, please speak to a staff member. We may be able to purchase the book or borrow it through Interlibrary Loan.

You can also use ARBookFind.com to check for reading level and points.
