Visit our outstanding library!
Students visit the library once each week. During this time, the librarian reads them a story and then each child is allowed to check-out books. Kindergartners check out one book. Children in grades 1-6 check out two: one Accelerated Reader(AR) book and one general book. Junior Librarians may check out three books. Books are due back one week later.
Who are Junior Librarians?
Junior Librarians are 4th-6th grade students who help the librarian each week by cleaning and organizing bookshelves.
What is AR?
Accelerated Reader (AR) was developed in 1985 as an assessment that primarily determines whether or not a child has read a book. After a child reads the book, they are provided with a computer-generated quiz. The results from these quizzes are intended to assist, motivate reading, monitor progress, and target instruction. Reports regarding reading level and comprehension skills are available through the software.
Renaissance Home Connect – This website will allow you to view your children’s AR progress. Contact your child’s teacher for username and password. You can even setup an email notification every time your child takes a quiz.
Use our Sonoma County Library, too! (Search for any book. Select “Request Item.” Enter your library card and phone number and the book will be ready for you at the Rincon Valley library.)
