SORA now available on CCS Clever

  • Columbus City Schools Library Services is committed to bringing unique learning opportunities to our students and we are pleased to introduce a new, free reading service providing digital books through Sora, the student reading app.  We are partnering with Columbus Metropolitan Library Digital Download Collaboration to give students and teachers 24/7 access to eBooks and audiobooks WITHOUT using a public library card.
    Why Sora? 
    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!  Sora 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.  
     How does it work? 
    1. Log in to  Clever and select the Sora app under the Library Media Technology heading.
    2. Answer a few simple questions to set up your account.
    3. Under your Profile, select + Add a library and enter Digital Downloads Collaboration.
    4. Click Borrow or Place hold on any title to be prompted to sign-in to the public library
    You can also download the free Sora app from the Apple App story, Google Play Store or visit, borrow with ccsoh, and enjoy anytime, anywhere on a computer, tablet, or smartphone.  Be sure to add Digital Download Collaboration to your profile.  This will give you access to CML ebooks and audiobooks.
    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 Sora!
