Great news readers and listeners! DCPS and DC Public Library have partnered to offer us a great website and app, Sora! On Sora, you’ll have access to DCPL’s large collection of ebooks and audiobooks, available for free all year and no library card required! Sora is created by Overdrive, so if you’re already reading or listening to ebooks from your public library on Overdrive or Libby, Sora will look very familiar. Many of the ebooks are compatible with Kindles and other e-readers!
To use Sora in the web browser, you first log into Clever. In the Library resources section, you’ll find the link to Sora. Before you use it for the first time, you will have to add both DCPS and DCPL libraries to your Sora account. Ms. Leese made a video tutorial that walks you through that process. Once you’ve got them added, you can read and listen at your leisure! Ms. Leese put together a video overview of how to use Sora’s main features. If you’re running into problems, you’ll want to start with Sora’s help pages.
These ebooks and audiobooks are in addition to the ones that you can access through Destiny Discover. The ebooks that Ms. Leese bought this school year and last, including many graphic novels, are not available on Sora; you will still need to log into Destiny Discover. If you have questions, please email Ms. Leese at or leave a message in the Library Team.
