NEW! Search for a book, find out how many AR points it is worth and if it is available ... and more!

The library inventory is now available to you from any computer with Internet access!  Also, you will find a link to the search feature for all the books in the library on the main page (in the RED BOX) on School Loop.


If the book you want shows "0" available, you can click on the "0" and find out when the book is due back.  Ask Mrs. Smeltzer to put a hold on the book and when it gets checked in, you will receive an email through School Loop telling you that the book is available.

You can put in your AR numbers (low number to high number) and search for books that you can test on.  Remember that AR tests MUST be taken with your English teacher.  No exceptions.
