Sign Up For A Library Card - Access eBooks and Audiobooks for Free
School Library Media Specialist, Mrs. Catherine Gilligan created a video instruction demonstrating how to request a library card from the Newburgh Free Library. This helpful video guides scholars and their families through the process to request a library card. Once scholars have a library card, they can access thousands of ebooks and audiobooks! The app (explained below) can also be found on scholar's Launchpad and can be accessed without a library card, however, scholars will have access to much more material if they connect their app to a library card.
Newburgh Enlarged City School District is happy to announce a collaboration with SORA from Overdrive and the Ramapo Catskill Library System to provide scholars with the ability to explore age-appropriate digital books.
The SORA app for K-12 provides students access to thousands of ebooks through their school and the Ramapo Catskill Library System. Scholars can access the books through the SORA icon on their Launchpad.
What can scholars do with SORA?
- Read ebooks and listen to audiobooks
- View and sync progress
- Define new and unfamiliar words
- Bookmark, highlight, and take notes
- Add a public library for more books.
