Did you know that White Plains students can access White Plains Library ebooks via their school Sora account? They can thanks to a new partnership between the Westchester Library System and Southern Westchester BOCES.
All your student needs to do this is enter their school ID/credentials in the Sora app they already have, and voila! You can borrow age appropriate content from the White Plains Public Library’s eBook collection.
In order to search the Library’s collection of eBooks, you simply need to add the Library to your Sora account.
Add Westchester Library System as a library, if it is not automatically there.
Make sure “Search all libraries” is turned on.
Your results will be displayed by the library that owns the item.
For a detailed walkthrough of how to setup access to the Library’s digital materials in your Sora app, watch this video by Mr. Talbot, librarian at Church Street Elementary.
