Make sure your child is ready on the first day of class so they spend more time learning, and less time playing catch up.  Get ready for Back-to-School in 3 easy steps!  (Is your account already updated? Read our tips on reading tools, or sign up for Bookshare at home!)


1. Make sure your child’s membership is active

  • Go to Bookshare  and log in.  (Trouble logging in? Reset your password.)
  • Check your child’s membership status on their personalized homepage.  Provide any missing information.
  • Still need to sign up your child? Sign up online!


2. Find your child’s books

  • Ask your child’s teacher for this year’s reading list.
  • Find the books on Bookshare; if they are  not there, you can request them.


3. Save and organize your books

  • Add books to Reading Lists (formerly Bookshelves) to make them easier to download and access. Watch a short video or read the Support Center guide.
  • For students who also have access to Bookshare at school, ask your teacher to create and share Reading Lists with your child.
