Students read more when libraries & schools partner
Only OverDrive’s Sora K-12 app empowers students to enjoy titles from their school’s digital collection AND juvenile and young adult ebooks and audiobooks from their local public library. This expanded access drives engagement and helps develop lifelong readers!
Our digital book clubs get people reading!
Together We Read is a Digital Book Club for OverDrive library partners in Australia and New Zealand. During this two-week programme, readers can borrow the selected title from participating libraries through Libby with no waitlists or holds. It’s another powerful tool OverDrive provides libraries to engage readers and promote their digital collection.
Designed to encourage reading all year long, the 10-week Chill Out & Read Chill Out & Read programme provides students at participating OverDrive partner schools with 26 free and simultaneous use juvenile and young adult ebooks.
