 What are OverDrive & Sora?

OverDrive is a digital library offering both ebooks and audiobooks for the Webb community, anytime, anywhere! Sora is the new user-friendly app that lets you access it through your laptop, phone or tablet.

The Sora app was designed around the modern student reading experience. It empowers students to discover and enjoy ebooks and audiobooks from their school, for both leisure and class-assigned reading.

Inspired by educator and student feedback, Sora was created to excite kids about reading and remove distractions to promote a focus on learning.
