Bookshelf FAQs

Q: Can my child read books on Biblionasium?

A: 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 read against challenges. However, they need to get the books from their school and classroom library.

Q: What’s the difference between the classroom bookshelf and the kids bookshelf?

A: “My Books” displays your child’s personal bookshelf: books they have marked as favorite, want to read and so on. The group bookshelf is managed by your child’s teacher and also includes recommendations from their classmates.

FAQs
 

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 Literacyfree digital picture books for kids
