Open a world of reading

North Adams Public Schools has partnered with North Adams Public Library to bring Sora to our students

North Adams Public Schools is committed to bringing unique learning opportunities to our students and we are pleased to introduce a new, free reading service providing digital books through Sora, the student reading app.

Why Sora?

The collection of titles in Sora is an extension of the North Adams Public Library, only it’s in an app with 24/7 access to ebooks and audiobooks. It’s convenient for students to check out titles at home, on the weekends or during school breaks with no worry about misplacing a book or running up late fees – 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.

·        Enrich vocabulary and improve comprehension and pronunciation

·        Introduce students to books above their reading level

·        Teach critical listening

·        Help busy kids find time to read

·        Incentivize reading with fun avatars and achievements

·        Allow easy access to North Adams Public Library’s collection, too! (in the Sora menu select:  +Add a library)

How does it work?

Download the free Sora app from the Apple App story, Google Play Store or visit, borrow with napsma, and enjoy anytime, anywhere on a computer, tablet, or smartphone.

Whether a student’s interest lies in classics for required reading, or the latest popular juvenile or young adult fiction, they can find it all in Sora!
