Project Gutenberg

All Grades, with parental supervision

Many of you may already be familiar with the Gutenberg Project that is composed of a team of volunteers endeavoring to make as many books as possible available online at no cost. Currently, there are over 60,000 books. Gutenberg makes it easy for you to find just the titles that might interest you.

When you get to the site, select the “Bookshelves” option from the “Search and Browse” dropdown menu in the top menu bar. When a new page opens, scroll down where you can select from categories such as children’s literature, picture books, book series, instructional books, and more! Click on any category, and a new page opens with a list of the free books available. These books can be read online or downloaded.

On the Children’s Literature bookshelf you will be able to access the writings of L. Frank Baum, Frances Hodgson Burnett, Edith Nesbit, Anna Sewell, and many more popular children’s authors.

Other authors in the bookshelves of Project Gutenberg include Agatha Christie, Andre Norton, Lester del Rey, Dostoyevsky, and many more.

One more thing: Project Gutenberg is always in need of more volunteers willing to proofread one page per day. You or your teen might like to join the team and take advantage of this exciting, fulfilling, skill-building opportunity.
