The summer reading goal across the county is 1500 minutes per student. We are now using Biblionasium instead of Scholastic to log minutes online. it can be accessed from the Cobb Digital Library or at http://www.biblionasium.com. Students will login using their computer username and password.

This video will show students how to use the reading log: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jIIzjF2tGpw
If students have great difficulty using Biblionasium, they can use a paper reading log of their choice and turn it in at the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year.
