If your student loves to read electronic books, we have plenty for them to choose from. Students can access myon.com and the Cobb Digital library to read ebooks. Usernames and passwords were sent home this week for these sites.
The Cobb County Public Library also has a new ebook collection!
After this week all classes will have been through orientation and can start checking out books!! Kindergarten will get to take home one book at a time, first grade can take home two books, and second-fifth grade can take home up to three books. All books are due two weeks from the day of check out. Students can renew their books if they are not done after two weeks. If you have any questions please let me know.
We are challenging our students to read 20+ minutes a day, students avoid the “summer academic slide” and maintain or advance academic gains. To support summer reading and learning, The Cobb County School District’s Library Media Education Department, in conjunction with the Cobb County Public Library, challenges all students to read 1,500 minutes this summer. This year we will once again use Biblionasium!
Here are some FAQ
How does my student log minutes for the Summer Reading Challenge?
Visit www.biblionasium.com/summerreading and choose the middle box for the Cobb County School District; students login using student number and the password used to log into the computer at school. If prompted, enter the state of Georgia and your school. Add books to your Biblionasium bookshelf and then log minutes in the reading log. You can also watch this video to learn more.
What do I do if my student forgot his/her username or password?
Call the Cobb County School District Customer Care Center at 770-514-2500. Hours are Monday – Thursday, 7 am – 5:30 pm, from May 27th through July 31st.
