Hi my name’s Olivia and I love to read.

Finding something new to read used to be a problem until the Sora app.

I can use Sora to discover and enjoy the industry’s largest collection of eBooks and audiobooks from my school, for both leisure and class assigned reading, and it couldn’t be easier to use!

Just find your school and log in using school credentials. From there it’s a simple one-tap step to borrow and start reading.

With Sora you can listen to audiobooks and add bookmarks, notes and highlights as you listen.

With eBooks there’s the dyslexic font, enlarged text, read-alongs and more, to personalise my learning.

And Sora provides a unified experience across the devices and operating systems.

This means you can sync loans, holds, highlights and more on all your devices.

With Sora, achievements and avatars make reading fun for students.

And teachers can optimise instruction with title assignments and reading data.

It’s even easy enough for my dad to use!

Sora, student reading app, brought to you by your school and built with love by OverDrive.
