Sora App: Your Digital Library
If you’re unfamiliar with Sora, it’s time to get acquainted. Sora is our digital library that puts thousands of eBooks and audiobooks at your fingertips – all for free! It’s your portal to a world of literary adventures and is available to all Provo City School District students and staff.
Sora is your always-open library, full of free ebooks and audiobooks from our school’s digital community library.
Students can personalize their reading experience by adding bookmarks, highlights, and notes and finding definitions for new and unfamiliar words, making every book their own. They can even add public libraries to their account to access more books.
Sora even includes options to adjust audiobook volume and speed and a dyslexic text option to enlarge and simplify fonts.
Moreover, Sora offers a diverse selection of English, Spanish, German, Italian, Russian, Swedish, Japanese, Chinese, and even hard-to-find Portuguese books.
Once you and your student borrow a book from the digital library, it returns itself, so you never need to worry about late fees.
Download the Sora app on your Chromebook or personal device and select your favorite ebooks and audiobooks in your preferred language now, or visit the Sora web page to start exploring!
