Just the Facts

Hutto ISD Libraries are committed to bringing unique learning opportunities to our students and we are pleased to introduce a new, free reading service providing digital books through Sora, the student reading app.


Why Sora?
The collection of titles in Sora is an extension of our school district's physical libraries.


Sora has 24/7 access to ebooks and audiobooks. It’s convenient for students to check out titles at home, on the weekends, or during school breaks with no worry about misplacing a book or running up late fees – these digital titles automatically return at the end of the lending period!


Sora can help students of all ages read more and improve comprehension. Struggling or reluctant readers, learning-challenged, second language learners, and gifted readers can all benefit from this service.

· Enrich vocabulary and improve comprehension and pronunciation

· Introduce students to books above their reading level

· Teach critical listening

· Help busy kids find time to read

· Incentivize reading with fun avatars and achievements


Access through Classlink (directions above) or go to https://soraapp.com to download the free Sora app for Android or iOS. For easy access, our school’s setup code is huttotx.


Digital books are compatible with smartphones, tablets, eReaders, and computers, including Chromebooks.

·

Worry Free!

When students are signed in to Sora, they are authenticated through Hutto ISD by their grade level. Available titles are automatically filtered and selected for the age level of the student who logs in. Your student will only be able to check out age-appropriate and grade-appropriate titles.
