Re-Launch of Sora

The district is re-launching Sora after our initial announcement in January.

Easily read and listen to books for free with Sora and your school Google Account.

You have free access to all the selections from within the NH Schools' Digital Collection.  Search or browse, then click on a book to 'borrow' it.  If the book is already checked out, it is 'unavailable' and you have to wait for it to be returned.  There are a few unlimited check-out books, mostly classics like Romeo & Juliet, that are 'Always Available'.

When first starting Sora, there is no 'setup code'; choose 'Manchester City Schools' when asked for your school. 

Once in Sora, you may want to change your filter to exclude Elementary content.
