Dubai: Browzly, a popular paper book-swap community, has now expanded into schools, with this year’s Summer Reading Challenge aided by the launch of a dedicated app and portal.

Bhawna Mishra, Browzly founder, said, “If your school has signed you up to use the Browzly app, you can do a lot of things together with your school mates, teachers and parents. The app has been particularly designed to create reading networks in schools between students, teachers and parents.”

She said through Browzly, schools can not only enable their communities to read more and read together in a social, accessible and measurable way, they can also sign up for a trial and get their students to participate in the 2018 Browzly Summer Reading Challenge on July 5.

Digital innovation

Simon Jodrell, head of primary at Dubai British School, said, “At Dubai British School we are really looking forward to sharing our library and the libraries of our school community collaboratively. Browzly brings both digital innovation and the enjoyment of reading to life in a purposeful and thoroughly modern manner”. Mishra said the 2018 Browzly Summer Reading challenge is open for participation for schools signed up to Browzly.
