We’re aware of the unique challenges educators and parents are facing due to COVID-19, and we will continue to provide a platform that encourages the love of reading, builds digital citizenship skills, and allows kids to connect with their friends in a safe, learning-focused environment.
We are proud to offer the following features to support reading in and out of the classroom:
- Reading logs. Students can log their reading on Biblionasium and keep track of how many books they have read along with the time spent reading them.
- Recommendations & reviews. Students can see real reviews from other students and get recommendations for great books to read from their peers.
- Classroom library. Teachers can add their classroom library on Biblionasium so students can easily see at a glance which books are available for them.
- Challenges. Biblionasium is a great way to run and track student reading challenges.
- Wish Lists. Parents can log on and see which books their child has added to their wish list. They can also see what their child is reading and help keep them on track.
- Sitewide Contests that encourage students to read
- Detailed REPORTS, on your students’ preferences and reading habits.

This all sounds great, but we just found out that our schools are closed until September. Our students do not have books at home, and have no access to books since our libraries are also closed. Do you have suggestions for students to have books to read online?
Hello Ms. Grinage,
Thank you for your comment. 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:
Audible’s ‘Stories Collection’ – a collection of audiobooks that are free to stream while schools are closed on desktop, laptop, phone or tablet, no logins or payment information required – https://stories.audible.com/start-listen
Project Gutenberg – A library of over 60,000 free e-books – https://www.gutenberg.org/
Overdrive – a resource where you can download e-books and audiobooks for free if you have a library card – https://www.overdrive.com/
Unite for Literacy – free digital picture books for kids – https://www.uniteforliteracy.com/
Please feel free to reach out to us at Contact@Biblionasium.com if you have further questions.
