AR Book Find
AR Book Find is a highly useful website for finding books' Accelerated Reader (ATOS) levels and point values. You may do a Quick Search for an individual title, or use Advanced Search to generate a list of titles that fit your specific needs. Please note: the library does not own every book found on the AR Book Find site. 

Teacher Cards and Collections
The library supports educators' special needs by offering a special card for their professional use. Home educators and school teachers alike are eligible to apply for teacher cards, which allow holders longer loan periods, higher item limits, and some fine forgiveness. Please see our Teacher Cards page for the full policy and to complete an application, or request a Teacher Collection.

Museum Passes
The library offers borrow-able passes to four community institutions. Families are encouraged to use these 3-day passes to explore Dayton's most enriching activities! Passes are available to the Dayton Art Institute, Aullwood Audubon Center and Farm, and Dayton History/Carillon Historical Park.  Passes can be reserved through the online catalog.
