SAUSD Digital Library Collections for Online Reading
The district has several platforms to make digital reading available to students.
Need a simple Reading Log you can do from home? Try My Reading Record (link will open your own copy of a Google Doc).
Sora provides the quickest and easiest way to get started with digital titles from our school. Students can log in using their sausdlearns.net account and immediately access thousands of eBooks and audiobooks on almost any device. Get started today at https://soraapp.com/library/santaanausd or download the free Sora app for Android or iOS. The app is already installed on all student Chromebooks. For easy access on other devices, our school’s setup code is: SantaAnaUSD.
Found the book you want, but it's already checked out? Place a hold.
