Sora-The student reading app, by OverDrive
Sora provides the quickest and easiest way to get started with digital titles from our school. Students can simply log in using school credentials and instantly access hundreds of eBooks and audiobooks on virtually any device. Get started today at https://soraapp.com or download the free Sora app for Android or iOS. Students can also find the link to Sora on the Hoover website on the Media Center Destiny Catalog page. The Sora link can also be found at the bottom of the home page of the Destiny catalog.
Students can use the access code, “montgomerymd”, or students can use the geolocation feature, “find my school” to locate their school. Students will log in with their network credentials. Anyone will only need to use the code once if it is on their personal device.
Students can borrow ebooks and audiobooks that are owned by Hoover Media Center, and also those shared by all schools in MCPS. They can also link to a public library to borrow ebooks from the public library.
What’s great in Sora:
● Easy onboarding
● One-tap borrowing and reading
● Fun reading achievements and avatars
