Schools use Lexile scores as a way of helping children choose books for their specific reading level. The library's catalog now contains many titles which have Lexile scores attached to their records. To check on a title, go to the library's catalog and search for it. Then, scroll down to the bottom of the record - there's the score! You can also search for titles within your child's Lexile range by going to the Kids' Parents' page
. On the right-hand side under "Leveled Reading Systems" click on "Lexile Reading Level Search" and follow the guide. There is also information about other reading systems there. Please come to the Kids' World Desk if you'd like a demonstration of this helpful new service.
