Getting Started with the Sora App

The SORA App, by Overdrive, is sponsored by the Oneida County Library for use in the Oneida County School Districts Brick & Mortar Schools only for all students K-12. Students can access eBooks & Audio Books available from our library Overdrive collection, plus the IDEA Collection from the Idaho State Commission for Libraries. A student doesn't have a library card? They don't need one! Meet with your school librarians to learn more about the amazing app and its possibilities.
