Sora Sweet Reads - Always available ebooks and audiobooks - 15 May -28 August - Juvenile Graphic

Sora, Granite’s digital library of ebooks and audiobooks, will once again be open for students and staff all summer long! Here are some ways to make the most of it.

Shorter Wait Times in Sora

Beginning this week we are shortening wait times for the most popular titles in Sora by moving to a 3 holds-per-copy maximum ratio. This means that when there are three or more holds per copy of a title in Sora, we will purchase an additional copy. Additional copy purchases happen weekly while school is in session. (Previously this school year we maintained a 4 holds-per-copy maximum ratio.)
