Your New Upgraded Sora (previously OverDrive) Experience
Previously students and teachers were required to create and use login credentials in order to use OverDrive.
Now, all students and faculty have access to Google single sign-on with Sora using their school email accounts.
It is super easy for all ages!
What's the Difference?
Overdrive & Sora
OverDrive is a digital library offering both ebooks and audiobooks for the students and teachers of the Questar III region, 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.

It allows users to borrow audiobooks and listen to them right in their browser – no downloads or software required.
Standard typefaces are often difficult to read for students with dyslexia as the letters are hard to differentiate and words tend to jumble together. Dyslexic fonts provide greater contrast in letters which solves this problem.
This dynamic translation tool allows your OverDrive-powered website to be viewed in nine languages, giving students the valuable opportunity to practice applying a new language in a real-life environment.
