Check out Sora for eBooks and Audiobooks

Ever used Overdrive at the public library? Check out Sora, the sister app to Overdrive. Students (and staff) can read eBooks and listen to audiobooks for free! I've purchased a couple of audiobooks to trial (Battle of the Books titles and few other popular titles), but I'm happy to get more if students use them.



Here's the extra cool part...because it's an Overdrive product, Sora can link to both Adams 12 libraries and our local public libraries! I link to Anythink Libraries, Denver Public Libraries, the Boulder Public Library, and the High Plains Library District, too. And, I can search all of those plus Adams 12 with a single search. (The only downside is you can only search Juvenile and YA titles, so I keep Libby--another Overdrive app--for other titles.)


Here's a direct link, but it's also in the menu on the library website (example on the right): http://bit.ly/AD12eBooks or https://soraapp.com/library/adamsco. Students (and teachers) can check out Adams 12 audiobooks and eBooks through a web browser, too. Want your class to check out eBooks and audiobooks? I'm happy to give your students a quick tutorial anytime!

Digital LIteracy Partnership

If you ever hear anyone mention the Digital Literacy Partnership (or the DLP), that's me! Across the district, there are Digital Literacy Teacher Librarians or Digital Literacy Teachers in every school. Our job is to support teachers and help our students with information literacy, digital literacy, and technology!


Again, I am available to collaborate and plan with you, co-teach a lesson, work with individual students or groups that need more help, or whatever else you need! I'm happy to come to department or common course meetings or sit down with you individually anytime!
