Boost circulation with student readers

Partnering with local schools can help you achieve your circulation and content goals. With Sora, the student reading app, and our Public Library CONNECT feature, Sora empowers students to borrow age-appropriate ebooks and audiobooks from their school and the local public library using school login credentials.

Circulation grows, along with kids’ love of reading!
