The collection of titles in Sora is an extension of Parker’s physical library, only it’s an app with 24/7 access to e-books and audiobooks. It’s convenient for students to check out titles at home with no worry about misplacing a book or returning it late! – 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.
