Are you trying to find AR (Accelerated Reader) books at the proper level for your child?  Use AR BookFinder to look up book levels. Selinsgrove Area School District parents:  if you wish to login to your child's account to see what they have read, what tests they have taken, how many points they have, their word count, etc.  go to Renaissance Home Connect.  Your child will need to tell you their username and password.  Snyder County Libraries doesn't have this information.
