What is Sora?
Sora is an award-winning digital reading application that empowers students to discover age-appropriate ebooks, audiobooks, and more from their school library. Lovejoy ISD currently offers students access to digital library books through SORA. The District has the ability to curate the collection of books accessible to students through the SORA platform. However, publishers at times have included external links with the digital books, similar to what is found in some hardcopy books. These external links are not maintained by the District and are not a material within the control of the District. The District neither selects the external links nor endorses the specific links. The District believes the online SORA platform is a beneficial program and will continue to allow students whose parents agree to utilize the resources.
Parents may access a list of digital books their children have checked out by following the steps noted below. 
Sora also allows you to connect your county or city library Sora account to access digital books.
In the spirit of transparency, the District is notifying parents of their right to opt out of the use of the SORA platform for their children. If you elect to not have your child access digital books through SORA, please contact your campus librarian.
