Sora/Overdrive is a local collection of eBooks and audiobooks curated by the school librarians featuring building specific collections and a shared elementary collection.  The books are borrowed and read/listened to in the Sora app.

Sora PLC

Public Library Connection (PLC) through Sora

The PLC uses the Sora app to allow Rose Tree Media students to access the Delaware County Library System’s eBooks and audiobook resources. This increases the catalog of titles which students can access through their district provided device. Elementary students will have access to resources designated as “Juvenile” by the publishers, which indicates appropriateness for K-5 students.

To access the "Delaware County Library System" collection, students must "Add a Library" and search for "Delaware County Library System." When selecting to borrow a book from DCLS, students must sign in by choosing "Rose Tree Media School District" (not DCLS). When searching for specific books, students can elect to place a checkmark in the box "Search all of my libraries" under the search bar. When browsing books, students can toggle between both collections by choosing the library they wish.

Junior Library Guild (JLG) Digital

JLG Digital is a rotating collection of eBooks and audiobooks. The books are always available since they do not get “checked out” of the collection, rather they can be read by any student at any time. The books are read/listened to on the site.

 

Follett

Follett Destiny/Destiny Discover

Follett Destiny is our district’s primary cataloging software which contains building specific book collections featuring physical books, eBooks, and audiobooks. The eResources are accessible through the app and website.

 

As with all digital resources, parental supervision is highly recommended.
