Find Books by Grade or Reading Level

arsprmAccelerated Reading
The Clayton County Library System strives to assist children in locating the AR titles they wish to read. The Headquarters Library and the Clayton County library closest to a public school often has a Reference print copy of that school’s AR list.

Many Clayton County Schools have their reading lists online through Read The Books. Read The Books allows lists to be sorted by points, grade level, author and title. We have assembled links to the most recent reading lists below.

If your school is not listed through Read The Books, you can use the AR Book Finder site to find books at the appropriate reading level. If you need to find books using the Lexile Framework for reading levels, use the Lexile Book Finder.

Find your school’s AR list online:
