Library Learning Center

This week in the library, I am going to be introducing a new online reading app called SORA. 

Students will be able to access SORA, an online reading app, at home, school, anywhere. SORA has Ebooks and audiobooks for kindergarten, 1-6 grades and middle school students. Everyone gets to enjoy it!

Students have the opportunity to access all of the Battle of the Books, and many other books!
