OverDrive Education Donates Ebooks and Audiobooks to Canadian Schools Using the Sora App

OverDrive announced the following:

To help Canadian schools meet demand for digital content without increasing budget, OverDrive Education has donated 100 juvenile and young adult titles to thousands of primary and secondary schools around the country. This Canada “Sora Starter” bundle is available to all Canadian schools and includes high-interest English and French ebooks and audiobooks in a variety of subjects from Canadian authors and publishers. …

Titles in this free collection—along with the original Sora Starter collection which features 200+ juvenile and young adult titles—are always available with no waiting for students to borrow and read. …

These titles [are] available now through September 30, 2023 in Canadian schools that use the Sora reading app. Schools not yet using Sora can try it for free and receive both collections at no additional cost. As part of OverDrive’s Everyone Reads program, new titles in a variety of subjects will be added for free into schools’ collections in the coming months.

For more information, read the press release.
