Sora Sweet Reads Summer Reading Program
The libraries in the Cassia County School District are gearing up for summer break. While summer presents an opportunity to relax and enjoy the sunshine, we want our students to continue to find ways to read while away from the classroom.
We have an exciting reading service available through Sora, the student reading app, which provides free 24/7 access to eBooks and audiobooks. What better way to engage your student’s mind than through reading?
Starting May 5 and running until August 20, 2021, the Sora Sweet Reads program will offer a collection of Juvenile and Young Adult titles that will be prominently displayed in Sora for quick and easy unlimited access. You can explore the title offerings and learn more about the program here.
Sora provides the quickest and easiest way to get started with digital titles from our school district. Students can simply log in using their school Gmail address and password and instantly access tens of thousands of eBooks and audiobooks on virtually any device. Get started today here or download the free Sora app for Android or iOS.
Our library name is Cassia County School District. Students should also add the IDEA by ICfL (The State of Idaho Library) and the LIBRI Systems, Inc. (The Burley, Rupert, and Jerome Public Libraries) Libraries to their app. The can also borrow books from these collections.
Questions? Contact your school librarian, Mrs. Conant @ 208-862-3203, or David Cole at firstname.lastname@example.org.
