Digital books and audio books again available to students


Just in time for March is Reading Month, Dearborn Public School students will again be able to access digital books and audio books online.

The district has brought back the Sora digital book service after working with developers and the Wayne County Consortium of schools to make sure the titles meet Dearborn Public Schools’ selection criteria.  

Sora allows Dearborn Public Schools’ students to browse, check-out and read online by signing in through Clever, as they do for other online programs. The Sora app can also be installed and used on phones and tablets.  This allows students to use their district ID and password to access digital materials on Sora. 

Sora for Dearborn Schools students will no longer be connected to the Dearborn Public Library’s digital collection because the district could not manage those materials for age appropriateness. Students and parents can still use their public library cards to access that digital collection through the library’s digital services.

Parents that do not wish their student to have access to Sora’s electronic books or audiobooks can complete the media materials opt-out form. The form can also be used to keep students from checking out physical materials in the district’s 30 school media centers.
