What Educators Are Saying About Sora

What I love the most about Sora is that it allows students to not only read books that I’ve purchased for them, but with a free library card, they can also access the huge selection of public library books, all in one app.


Susan Forgas

Resource Management Associate

The accessibility of reading digitally – such as the availability of audiobooks and being able to change things like font, size and background – is a game changer for so many students.


Molly Dettmann

Teacher Librarian

The reason we started with OverDrive/Sora was to offer equitable access to books for pleasure reading in our most rural districts, where students do not have access to a public library or well-developed school library.
