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.

Can I use my old OverDrive link?

No, please use this link:
OverDrive Listen for Sora

It allows users to borrow audiobooks and listen to them right in their browser – no downloads or software required.

Dyslexic Font

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.

Multilingual Interface

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.

Word to the wise

If your secondary students bemoan the Sora icon and think it "babyish", remind them that some of their favorite apps, like Snapchat and Waze, use very similar icons.
