SORA

We have partnered with the Auglaize County Public Library and have connected Perry Schools' digital library (Sora) to theirs which means MORE book selections, titles, audiobooks, etc. for our students and staff! Many students have already logged in and taken advantage of this new and FREE service! You can access Sora from your Chromebook and/or smartphone.


Here's how:

1. Go to Perry's "mycommodores.org" webpage.

2. Click on "Students/Student Links."

3. Choose "Perry's eBook Library (Sora)."

4. Find "Perry District Library."

5. Enter your credentials. Username: Student ID Number Password: Birthday (MMDD)

6. "Add Library" by going to the dot box icon (waffle) in the top right corner and selecting "Ohio Digital Library" (When asked in the dropdown menu, select Auglaize County Public Library" to have access to even MORE ebooks/audiobooks.)

7. EXPLORE! Check out or place a hold now!
