SORA (by Overdrive)

BOOKS! All the books at the click of a mouse/trackpad. A world of reading.

Click the link for Sora. Find our school district and select it. Sign in through SBLink. Then, from the hamburger menu in the upper right-hand corner, choose add a library. Type 92404 to search. Choose San Bernardino Public Library. Repeat search, and choose San Bernardino County Library. Now you have thousands of ebooks and audiobooks to choose from. Enjoy!

Below is a quick video I made to show you how to get full access to the school, city, and county libraries. I also added info about how to get to the book request form at the end of the video. You use SBLink instead of Clever, but everything else is the same.

Free and discounted books. "BookBub is a free service that helps you discover books you'll love through unbeatable deals, handpicked recommendations, and updates from your favorite authors." The site doesn't sell books, they search out books for you, based on what type of books you like, and give you great recommendations that you can get, often for free.

Read the classics for free and read with friends. Glose is a free reading app that claims to give you access to around 4000 public domain classics and lets you add books from places like Project Gutenberg. It has ways for readers to interact with each other and share quotes, so if you and a few friends wanted to read some classic together, it would be good for that. You get a free book for signing up for an account and websites, like Riveted, will give a free book that you access on Glose.


Listen to classics for free. Many of the same public domain books that are available on Glose are available on Lit2Go and LibriVox. The interface on Lit2Go is nicer and many of the readings are better quality, but there are more books available on LibriVox. Either way, you can find plenty of classics available for your listening pleasure on these two sites.
