How schools like yours are using Sora Sweet Reads

Sora Sweet Reads is designed to encourage students to keep reading all year long, which is why we’re so glad that districts like Widefield School District 3 (CO) are finding creative ways to leverage these always available titles as a critical component of their weekly summer reading programs.

Check out some of the graphics they’ve been using to promote summer reading in Sora each week below.

Need more reading? Access the public library!

add library in sora screenshot on a tabletIf your students have run out of Sweet Reads titles, they can always add their public library to browse and borrow from an even larger selection of age-appropriate ebooks and audiobooks — all without ever leaving Sora!

How it works:

  1. Students add their local public library in the Sora app.
  2. They’re presented with all the age-appropriate titles available to them from the library’s digital collection.
  3. Titles are borrowed using a library card or existing school credentials (if the school and public library have opted in to Public Library CONNECT).
