School Partnerships Increase access to eBooks
Yolo County Library, Washington Unified School District in West Sacramento, and the Winters Joint Unified School District have formed an innovative technology partnership to increase access to more eBooks and eAudiobooks for students. The unique collaboration strives to promote literacy and digital learning by combining school and library digital reading resources in one app.
Using the Sora app, students in Yolo County can borrow from their school’s digital collection of classroom and pleasure reading materials AND from Yolo County Library’s children’s and young adult digital collections. Students can easily log into the Library’s digital collection using the app and their student ID, rather than requiring a separate library card. Sora will automatically filter content to only include age-appropriate titles depending on each student’s grade level.
In addition, Yolo County Library provides TumbleBook Library for all Yolo County public schools. In Tumblebook Library, kids can safely browse and read books by their favorite authors. All books are instantly available, with no need to place a hold or check out. Schools can provide Tumblebook Library on their own website.
