Library Catalog

The Mohawk Trails Library Catalog has some great features to support our readers. I encourage you to search the library catalog with your child from home. You may even find some old favorites to recommend to your child! (Maybe Harold and the Purple Crayon?) Students in grades 1-5 can show you how they search the catalog during library classes.

To create a list of titles of interest to your child, drag and drop the book covers into "My List" on the right side of the screen. Then click to view and print out a list. I would love to help your child find the books on their list when they come to the library.

To search the catalog for books at a particular reading level (Lexile), please follow these directions: In addition to finding books, students can also find age-appropriate, reliable websites through the library catalog. Type in a search term, then at the top of the list of results, click the "Websites" tab. Results may be filtered by grade, Lexile and more. This is also a great resource for research! Please contact Mrs. Rumschlag at with any questions. Happy Reading!
