SUMMER READING 🙂

Summer reading for Durham students will be compiled in Biblionasium. Biblionasium is like goodreads for kids. It allows users to create virtual bookshelves where they can categorize books. They are able to add books outside of what’s available via the Durham Media Center collection. Students who read at least 20 minutes a day this summer will log 1,500 reading minutes before they return to school August 1st. Wow!

Lots of details and FREE resources are available via the media center website. Remember, Durham Media Center ebooks and audiobooks, and ebooks available through Tumble Book Cloud and eBooks on Ebscohost on the Cobb Digital Library are available for check out throughout the summer as well. Take advantage of all the Cobb County Public Library System has to offer. Happy reading!
