What is Sora?   Sora is an app, like Libby, that was designed for students to use in accessing the Overdrive content that their school owns.  It provides teachers and school librarians a platform to :

  • Drop assignments to students in the app
  • Tracking reading progress
  • Badging/Achievement programs
  • Instructional titles
  • Pleasure reading
  • Professional development resources
  •  Highlighting an notes available for students

Why should public libraries care?  The Sora app can also be linked to the public library(s) that serve the students of that district or school.

  • An opportunity to partner with schools
  • Show collaboration and community engagement
  • A new stream of access to new patrons
