           Biblionasium is the fun, reading-focused social network for kids ages 6-13. Connecting kids in an encouraging community of friends, family and their educators, Biblionasium excites, engages and encourages a love of the written word. Kids can log their reading, play games, complete reading challenges and earn rewards within a safe social network built especially for them.  Your child’s safety online is a top concern.  The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) is a piece of legislation passed on April 21, 2000 to help keep children safe on the Internet.  In compliance with COPPA, Biblionasium does not allow children 13 years of age or younger to have an account until a parent, legal guardian or an educator creates one for them.  We ask for the date of birth of all users to help ensure that they meet the age criteria of COPPA and our site. To find out more about COPPA, please visit http://www.coppa.org.

You or your child do not need to know their Reading Level to use the website.  However, the idea behind Reading Levels is simple: if we know how well a child can read and how hard a specific book is to comprehend, we can predict how well that child will likely understand the book.

Many other factors affect the relationship between a reader and a book, including its content, the age and interests of the reader, and the design of the actual book. Reading Level designations are a good starting point in the book-selection process, with these other factors then being considered.

Biblionasium has partnered with MetaMetrics®, developer of the widely adopted Lexile® Framework for Reading, to help you search for books based on a child's reading level. Their aim is to help children, parents and teachers to find “just right” books for the children’s school and pleasure reading. The best way to grow as a reader, is with text that's not too hard and not too easy.  Librarians, teachers and parents can also easily know when a reader might need a little help, or a little more challenge with the selection of the books they are reading.

Biblionasium can accessed by students through the Destiny Discover portal for both students and teachers.
