NEW! Read eBooks and audiobooks on any device, including your own Kindle, phone, tablet, or computer/Chromebook, with the Sora app.
Sora is a new app and a website for reading and borrowing digital books and audiobooks purchased for you for our school. The app is free and the books are yours to use for 3 weeks at a time, at no cost to you. Students (and teachers) can borrow 4 books at a time and can place up to 3 holds. (Please note: we still have many ebooks and audiobooks in Destiny Discover that we will continue to use, but Sora has many features we think you will like, so we are building that collection.) If you don't see the books you want to read here, please email your request to Mrs. Barthelmes.
HERE'S HOW TO USE IT! Click here, select any SWBOCES school, then select "H.C. Crittenden MS" from the drop-down list. Sign in with your school Google account. To search for books, click Explore (Binoculars icon button), and browse the collections, or use the "Search for it" box in upper left side of screen, hit Enter. Click on book cover for description and more information. Read a Sample, add it to a List, place a Hold, or click Borrow if you are ready to check it out. You will have it for 3 weeks. Begin reading, or, to return early or send it to your Kindle, click "Shelf" and then "Options" to either return the ebook early, or to send it to your Kindle (Amazon account required.) Don't see the books you want to read? Please email requested titles to Mrs. Barthelmes!
