We do not have books on the website for kids to read. On Biblionasium, children can rate, review, and recommend books to their community. They can also log their reading and participate in reading challenges. However, due to copyright, students will need to obtain the books from other sources.
Beyond school and public libraries, we recommend that you review the following sources to consider recommending to your students for reading books online:
Project Gutenberg – A library of over 60,000 free e-books in the public domain
Overdrive – a resource where you can download e-books and audiobooks for free if you have a library card
Unite for Literacy – free digital picture books for kids

- Add new group(s) that are not needed in Destiny (book clubs, special classes, etc.)
- Add additional educators to any group
- Move students between groups with ease (without needing to re-sync data)
- Allow students to join a group using a unique group code
