Online Leveled Readers

Read free online Leveled Readers. Online books, like these Leveled Readers, are called eBooks (short for electronic book). Many of these eBooks can be downloaded and printed.

Leveled Reader collection @ Oregon City Campus

CCC Library has over 600 books for adult English Language Learners.

These books are organized according to reading level, starting at Level 1 / yellow (easiest) and ending at Level 6 / black (hardest).

The Leveled Reader Collection is located in the lower part of CCC Library, in the Student Lounge area in front-facing bookshelves.

Remember the rule of five: If you open a book to a page and don't understand five words on that page, it may be too challenging for you to read at this time. But you'll get there, and in the meantime, we have books for every reading level!

If you are reading at a level beyond Level 6 / black, talk to a librarian about other books in the library. We have some great young adult and popular fiction titles!
