SPRING HILL INTERMEDIATE LIBRARY
"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go."
Welcome to the Intermediate Library! We are so excited to be able to encourage the love of reading in your child through a variety of activities in the library. Not only will we share all genres of books, we will explore the world, solve puzzles, create projects and play mind stretching games. We will host a Scholastic Book Fair in the spring which is always a fun time for the students, parents and extended families. Our goal is to show your students just how much fun reading can be. Please contact me, Jena Wayt (librarian) or Sherry Phillips (librarian assistant extraordinaire), with any questions you might have.

What is AR?
Accelerated Reader (AR) is a program that SH uses in grades 1-5, to help students strengthen their reading skills. Twice a year, the students take a computerized test (Star), that lets the teachers know what level the student is reading on. This level, known as the Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD), is what the students use to find books in the library on their level. They read these books and take AR tests over them to make sure that they are comprehending what they are reading, and they also earn points on the tests that they take. Teachers set goals for how many points a student should get as well as what their test average should be for each marking period. When the students demonstrate mastery on a level, the teacher can increase their ZPD so that they will have more challenging books to read. The goal of using this program is to motivate students to read and in the process, become stronger readers.
Parents & Students: The website to check your books from home to see if it is an AR book and to check the level is:
Due to limited checkout time, only 5th grade students will be able to check out two books at a time.
Students with any overdue book may not check out another book until the late book is returned or paid for.
Fines are not charged for late books, but damaged, destroyed or lost books will have to be paid for before the students can check out other books.
