Welcome to the Evergreen Library Media Center
     Our library is open to students and families from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. most school days. All students come once a week for a 20-minute book checkout with their teacher. Students may also checkout books at other times during the week with Mrs. Hoffman. 
    What is Accelerated Reader (AR)? AR is a computer program that helps teachers and librarians manage and monitor children’s independent reading practice. Your child picks a book at his own level and reads it at his own pace. When finished, your child takes a short quiz on the computer. (Passing the quiz is an indication that your child understood what was read.) AR gives children, teachers, and librarians feedback based on the quiz results, which the teacher then uses to help your child set goals and direct ongoing reading practice. Children using AR choose their own books to read, rather than having one assigned to them. This makes reading a much more enjoyable experience as they can choose books that are interesting to them. Teachers and librarians help your child choose books at an appropriate readability level that are challenging without being frustrating, ensuring that your child can pass the quiz and experience success.

     There are over 150,000 AR quizzes available for Sedro-Woolley School District students!
