A Few Library/Reading Resources

I’ve been getting a lot of readers’ advisory questions this week!  This is definitely one of the best parts of my job.

Just thought I’d share a few resources I use to match kids of up with books.    You may already be using them, but I thought it would be helpful to put them all in one place.

Bookshare [Free online books for students with disabilities]
Free account required

Novelist Plus [Search by subject, plot summary, grade level, and more]
Password via Westmont Public Library:  See M. Torrise

Novelist K-8 [Same as Novelist Plus, but includes picture books through YA fiction]
Password via Westmont Public Library:  See M.Torrise

The Lexile Framework [Search for books by Lexile] [Find books by similar authors]

Westmont High School Library Collection [Search our library]
