Reading is the key to inspiration, and you can start the new school year off on the right foot by making sure you have the books you need for  class. Whether you are new to Bookshare or have been using it for years, follow these easy steps to get ready for Back-to-School!

  1. Update your account: Log in to Bookshare  or sign up online! (Trouble logging in? Reset your password.)
  2. Find books
  3. Save and organize your books
    • Add books to Reading Lists to make them easier to access.
    • Teachers, share Reading Lists with students with Individual Memberships so they can access books independently.

    I am the Special Education Director at Renaissance Academy. I have a BookShare account but, to be honest!!! Have no idea how it works, i.e.. putting books on IPads, access for students at their homes, etc. I could use some HELP!!! Is there training available? Or can I have someone call and walk me through the process? I am a bit tech illiterate 🙂
    Thank you,
    Kimberly Beck

    I just read Bookshare’s response to Kimberly Beck’s comment a couple of days ago, and wonder if you could have an educational manager contact me also. I, too, am technologically illiterate but know that my special ed students would benefit tremendously from Bookshare. Please help!

    Thanks! : )

    I am a special education teacher interested in accessing Bookshare books for students. I am having trouble navigating your system to create lists, accounts, etc. Is there a website for help with specific issues?
