A special THANK YOU to author Allison Pittman for meeting with our group this past spring for a very fun & informative Q & A session!  Plus helping out with our summer Fiction Addiction club!
 
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.  
 
Access has been paused for district system updates, but it will be available again later this month. Sorry for any inconvenience.
