For Parents

Search our catalog from home!

Does your Jaguar complain that s/he does not have enough time at school to search the library catalog?  Or does s/he bring home books which are too easy or too hard?  Here's an idea to help me help them:  Search the online catalog together at home! The "reading level" limiter on the search box allows you to identify books by grade level. That way, your student can come to the library armed with a call number and ready to go to the shelves.
