Why are Individual Memberships to Bookshare Important?
Individual memberships give students 24/7 access to the Bookshare library and the ability to find and download books on their own, or with the assistance of a parent or guardian. Harry Potter, Amelia Bedelia, Stuart Little, and tens of thousands of other fun and exciting accessible books will be at their fingertips. Get your child or student a Bookshare individual membership today and use promo code: roadtrip.
