Newburyport High School Institution for Savings Library Media Center: eBooks

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 https://soraapp.com.

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)
  • OverDrive.com (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.
