The Argonaut High School Library consists of a single room with Chrome Books for students use with internet access and 1 networked laserjet printer.  Our librarian assists students with books selection and is the Administrator for the AR program and monitors Tests for Teachers in other subject areas. Working in conjunction with other departments, our librarian continues to develop the listing of books, videos, and periodicals. The Library is available for Study Hall use each day.

To gain access to the internet on campus a form known as the Amador County Office of Education Student Application for Educational Use of District Technology must be completed and signed by a parent/guardian and student and remain on file in the library.

Accelerated Reader (AR)
With the new AR system a password is needed to access your student AR account. As a student you need both your predetermined username and password to be able to take a test. The password and user name can be obtained once by going to the Librarian with a photo identification. The Librarian will then give you your information to keep with you. Future need of the username and password will be available from their English Teacher. If this information is lost, there is a penalty for each time you need the required information of a deduction of words from your total amount of words that were obtained during that marking period.
