PARENTS: As you browse through our titles, you will notice that most of the books have been assigned a grade level range, K-2, 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12. Keep in mind that these levels are determined from information provided by the book publishers. It is important to remember that our audience is Kindergarten through 8th grade. Not every book is appropriate for every child. Family standards vary widely. Therefore, the best thing parents can do is set the standards for their own children and offer guidance.
If you have questions or need assistance regarding your student’s log-in information, please contact Verner Librarian Alice Russell (firstname.lastname@example.org).
