Did someone say digital books?  We have SORA, an Overdrive program, for access to our district ebooks & audiobooks!  Currently available for all CISD secondary school students.  6th graders will have access to elementary and middle school resources.  7th and 8th graders will have access to elementary, middle school, and high school resources.  
 
You may access Sora by logging into your ClassLink account and clicking on the Sora app.
