Bookshare for Teachers
Teachers are superheroes. They work tirelessly to support students in and out of the classroom.
But even superheroes need a little help.
Bookshare® is an essential literacy tool that helps teachers to provide the support students with learning differences need to read and learn.
Make reading easier and save time
Bookshare is a FREE, federally-funded library of ebooks designed for students with learning differences. Students who struggle with traditional books are empowered to read in ways that work for them with specialized ebooks in audio, audio with highlighted text, large font, and braille. Paired with popular assistive reading tools, reading is easier.

Bookshare ebooks are designed specifically for students with learning differences, providing more ways to access text and customize their reading experience.
Make teachers’ lives easier

Close reading gaps
Students build reading proficiency and confidence that helps them perform better in class and accelerate their overall learning.
