MESSAGE FOR PARENTS, GUARDIANS, & KIDS

Dear Parent/Guardian,

This Thursday, November 1st, your child will be learning how to download books for free from the SMS library using an app called SORA. Additionally, students will have access to e-book collections from any public library of which they are a member.

  This is the icon for SORA 

If your child has a cell phone or a tablet/iPad, they will need to download the app called “SORA.” If your child needs your permission to download from the App Store, they will need to download SORA at home. If your student has access to the App Store without your permission, they can download at school in the SMS library.

Students will need to bring their phone or device with them to school on Thursday. If your child does not have a cell phone or a device, this is not a problem. The library has paper copies of hundreds of books for students. 

Once your child knows how to use SORA, he or she will be able to download books to their phone, device, or Kindle for free. It’s a great way for kids to find books even if there is no library or bookstore around for miles. Additionally, your child will never receive an overdue notice because books checked out through SORA automatically go back into the system on the due date.

Thank you for your support and cooperation!

Best regards,

Karin M. Warzybok, Ed.M.
