Sora Summer Reading Program

Starting June 6th through August 15th, Sora is providing 30 free and simultaneous use juvenile and young adult ebooks. This means that anybody and everybody in our district can read the same title at the same time (of the 30 summer titles). These titles will be prominently displayed in Sora so it’s easy for students to find their next book and chill out and read.

Students and staff can access Sora from any device through the Sora app or through the website. All you have to do is log in with your district username and password and you’re ready to read or listen.

Have a great summer and happy reading!

Free Summer Audiobook Program

The free summer audiobook program for 13+ from SYNC starts today. They will give away two complete audiobook downloads a week based on weekly themes. Last year they gave away 26 titles and this year they are giving away 28 titles. That means that the program runs for 14 weeks – 2 titles a week x 14 weeks = 28 titles. I thought I’d throw in a little math for you. 🙂

The titles will switch every Thursday and you will need the OverDrive app which you can download in Self Service. The cool thing is that we can all be listening at the same time! I find that listening to audiobooks is perfect for when I’m in the car. Happy listening!
