Sora - Digital Library

Sora LogoWhy Sora?
The collection of titles in Sora is an extension of Kemp ISD’s physical library, only it’s in an app with 24/7 access to ebooks and audiobooks. It’s convenient for students to check out titles at home, on the weekends or during school breaks with no worry about misplacing a book or running up late fees – these digital titles automatically return at the end of the lending period!

Sora can help students of all ages read more and improve comprehension. Struggling or reluctant readers, learning-challenged, second language learners, and gifted readers can all benefit from this service. 

  • Enrich vocabulary and improve comprehension and pronunciation
  • Introduce students to books above their reading level
  • Teach critical listening
  • Help busy kids find time to read
  • Incentivize reading with fun avatars and achievements 
  • Allow easy access to your public library’s collection, too! (in the Sora menu select: +Add a public library) 

How does it work?
Download the free Sora app from the Apple App Store, Google Play Store or visit soraapp.com, borrow with your student’s ClassLink login [school Gmail & password], and enjoy anytime, anywhere on a computer, tablet, or smartphone. Once the title is downloaded, you no longer need WiFi or data to enjoy it.

Whether a student’s interest lies in classics for required reading, or the latest popular juvenile or young adult fiction, they can find it all in Sora!

Adding a public library to your Sora account:
 
Students can connect a public library's Overdrive catalog to their Sora account to expand the resources they have access to. [Students need to have a public library card in order to access the public library resources.]
 
For Example: if a student has a Cedar Creek Lake Library card, they can add the Northeast Texas Digital Consortium to their Sora account.
