Need a Class Set of Ebooks?

It's possible for the librarians to purchase a classroom set of novels on the Sora platform. Though we haven't done this before, we're willing to partner with you to give it a try! Please email questions to Marie Slaby.

Class Sets allow your whole class to read the same digital title at the same time, with one dedicated copy available for each user during a lending period that you specify. This per-user lending model is offered by select publishers, and is less expensive than its traditional lending model counterpart.

When you purchase a Class Set, you purchase the title for a set of specific users for a predetermined length of time. The title will be automatically assigned to each user on the start date that you choose. To purchase a Class Set, you'll need to know your desired start date, lending period, and the user IDs for users who should receive the title.

There are five designated as Classic Literature.

There are 36 popular Young Adult books, including Neal Shusterman's Scythe and Dry, Jason Reynold's award-winning Long Way Down and All-American Boys, Scott Westerfeld's Uglies, Stephen Chbosky's Perks of Being a Wallflower, Benjamin Alire Saenz's Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe.

There are also 59 popular Children's books, including Jason Reynold's Ghost and As Brave As You, Gary Paulsen's Hatchet, Margaret Peterson Haddix's Among the Hidden, Laurie Halse Anderson's Chains, and E.L. Konigsburg's From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweller.

For EAL Students

  • Many of our subscriptions have the option of sorting by lexile level. All the Gale databases give an easy color-coded rating on a five-point scale to help students find articles and information written at a variety of reading levels. Ask your librarian for a demo of how to use the lexile tools within the library databases.
