Dear CQSB Parents,
The Central Quebec School Board is committed to bringing unique learning opportunities to our students and we are pleased to tell you about a free reading service providing digital e-books and audio
books through Sora, the new student reading app (soraapp.com). The majority of the book titles in the CQSB Digital library are aimed at elementary level cycle 2 and high school.
You can access Overdrive's website by clicking the following picture.
Why Sora and OverDrive?
The CQSB Digital collection is an extension of our physical school libraries, only it’s online with 24/7 access to e-books and audiobooks. It’s convenient for students to check out titles at home, on the weekends or during school breaks with no worry about misplacing a book or running up late fees – these digital titles automatically return at the end of the lending period!
Our digital collection can help students of all ages read more and improve comprehension. Struggling or reluctant readers, learning-challenged, second language learners, and gifted readers can all benefit from this service.
Enrich vocabulary and improve comprehension and pronunciation
Introduce students to books above their reading level
Teach critical listening
Help busy kids find time to read
Incentivize reading with fun avatars and achievements in the Sora app
How does it work?
To access our digital collection, students can browse our secure custom website or through the free Sora app (soraapp.com).
Students need their edumail email address to login. Whether a student’s interest lies in classics for required reading, or the latest popular juvenile or young adult fiction, they can find it all in the digital collection. You can access Sora's website by clicking the following picture.
Where can I find more information?
Help is available through the Sora app and the OverDrive website. Students are welcome to contact their school librarian with any questions.
