KSD students have access to Sora, an app that provides a wide range of ebooks and audiobooks through our partnerships with MOREnet, the St. Louis County Library, St. Charles County Library, and St. Louis Public Library systems. With the start of the 2023-24 year, we will be updating our Sora filters to allow students to access additional titles and a wider selection of materials.
- K-5 (No change) - Access to juvenile books through MOREnet, St. Louis County Library, St. Charles County Library, & St. Louis Public Library
- 6-8 - Access to juvenile and young adult books through MOREnet, St. Louis County Library, St. Charles County Library, & St. Louis Public Library
- 9-12 - Access to juvenile, young adult, and general adult books through MOREnet, St. Louis County Library, St. Charles County Library, & St. Louis Public Library
Please note, Sora collections are not curated by KSD staff. Titles available through MOREnet were purchased specifically for use by K-12 students, while those available through the city and county libraries were purchased with the general public in mind.
We recognize that not all books within a library collection will be of interest to all students within a school, and some topics may be more appropriate for some students than others. Families may research materials available in Sora, as desired, and have conversations with their children about any library resources they'd prefer their students avoid and/or refrain from reading. Families may also restrict their students' access to Sora in its entirety using a school-specific Opt Out Request Form.
