Getting Started with Sora

Download eBooks & Audiobooks with Sora

Sora is a new reading and listening app from OverDrive and Newburyport High School. With Sora, students and staff can access a large collection of eBooks and audiobooks for independent reading. 

Students can read or listen to these books using a computer, phone or eReader.   



Step 1

Install the Sora app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store, or go to

Find and open your school's digital collection by typing Newburyport High into one of the following readers:

  • Sora  (find on your phone's App. store)
  • The original OverDrive (find on your phone's App. store)
  • (if you want to read by using your laptop)

Step 2

In Sora, find your school (Newburyport High), then sign in using your computer login username and password.

Step 3

Browse the Explore tab and borrow a book. Your book will open so you can start reading right away.

Step 4

Close the book and go to your Shelf to see all your books (including assignments). From there, you can:

  • Tap Open Book or Open Audiobook to read or listen to the book.
  • Tap Options to renew or return the book, get to your notes and highlights, and more.
