Provo City School District is committed to bringing unique learning opportunities to our students, and we are pleased to introduce our free reading service, which provides digital books. We’re talking about Sora, the student reading app.

Why Sora?

The collection of titles in Sora is an extension of our physical libraries, only it’s in an app with 24/7 access to ebooks and audiobooks. The app is 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 their comprehension. Struggling or reluctant readers, students with extra learning needs, 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
  • Scaffold reading with accessibility options, including dyslexia
  • Allow easy access to the public library’s collection, too! (in the Sora menu, select: +Add a library) 

How does it work? 

Download the free Sora app from the Apple App Store, or Google Play Store, or visit Enjoy anytime, anywhere, on a computer, tablet, or smartphone.

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!
