For many of us in the Northern Hemisphere, February represents the heart of the winter doldrums: many of the major holidays are over, spring is still a month (or two!) away and it seems like everything is covered in a cold, gray wash.

This also means you and your students MIGHT be going a little stir crazy — so now is the perfect time to distract them with an ebook or two in the Sora reading app! And right now, there are thousands of ebooks and audiobooks currently on sale in OverDrive Marketplace, meaning you can get them something new to read without breaking the bank!

Black History Month Sale — Feb. 1-28

Black history is American history — so it’s crucial that you’re covering it in your lesson plans all year long. However, Black History Month provides a unique opportunity for educators to center Black stories and voices throughout your school community, elevating books and resources to inspire students to learn, reflect and grow.

Our Black History Month Sale can help schools add more representation to their collections with discounted fiction and nonfiction ebooks and audiobooks, with books by Black authors and titles that highlight key moments and figures in Black history.
