We’ve been listening! We were overwhelmed with all the positive feedback and have
been researching, planning and working with schools and libraries to make this site even better. We
are really excited about the new RBS website and all the new features we have planned and want to
thank everyone for helping to prove this is a valuable asset. With your feedback we redesigned the
whole site and have a lot of big improvements
We have completely rewritten RBS and have a new platform to implement a bunch of new functionality. Here
are just some of the things we have implemented so far;
- New, smarter and dynamic user interface
- Comprehensive repository of Accelerated Reader (AR) Quizzes and Book data(English and Spanish)
- We now proudly support Scholastic’s Reading Counts (SRC) program
and the Lexile levels
- Z39 Integration with Libraries. We were the only website to integrate search with public libraries
and we now have made it even better with the industry standard Z39 integration. For more on Z39
integration click here
- Schools and libraries can now self manage their own information, integration settings, upload
reading list and manage them.

have new look, new platform and lots of ideas STAY TUNED!
The Reading Bookshelf is a site built by parents who were experiencing the same challenges as other
parents with their school reading programs;
How do I help my child find the right books for their school reading program at the local library?
We decided to do something about it use our skills and leverage our contacts to plan, design and build
this web site to hopefully help children become better readers.
The Reading Bookshelf (RBS) is a FREE site dedicated to helping parents finding books for
their school's Accelerated Reading or Scholastic Reading
Counts program at local libraries, bookstores and on the web. RBS allows schools to publish their AR or
RC lists and related information like points, reading level, Lexiles, etc. RBS then uses these lists
and checks for availability of those books at local libraries and book stores.
