Bookopolis Social Network Temporarily Shutting Down

Dear Educators and Parents,

This is a reminder about upcoming changes to Bookopolis.com. As of September 15, 2019, Bookopolis will temporarily shut down our core social networking features that allow kids to create virtual bookshelves, write book reviews, log their reading, and recommend books to peers. For the Fall and Winter of 2019, we will focus solely on being a go-to source of curated book recommendations for young readers. There will not be a way to “log in” to a teacher, parent, or student account for the next 6 months.

Unexpected changes from our book data providers and other integration partners have required us to invest in significant product development on the website over the next few months. We want to use this opportunity to pause and better understand the features required to best serve the educators, parents, and young readers who use our site. If you have suggestions for product improvements, send us a note here.

If you need to access summer reading data for your student or child, please contact us so we can work with you to share this information.

I apologize in advance for any troubles this last-minute change may cause those of you who have used Bookopolis for years and to those of you who just discovered Bookopolis. (We took down the SIGN-UP button in early August but some folks have still been able to sign up for new accounts.)

I’m so grateful that you and your young readers have been an active part of the Bookopolis community and we hope to continue serving you in the future as your ally to inspire a lifelong love of reading in elementary and middle school students.

Please continue to visit Bookopolis to see the latest books that we are reading, recommending, and sharing.

With gratitude,
Kari, Mayor of Bookopolis
