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.

Over 550 titles which include animated talking picture books, books in English, French and Spanish, read-alongs, non-fiction books and National Geographic Videos. This link will log into SAUSD's subscription automatically.
Some teachers have already created Epic! classrooms for their students and enrolled students in their class. If your student does not already have a class code from a teacher, use code gtt8362 (new code for 2020-2121!) at www.getepic.com/students. This will allow student access 6 am-3 pm Monday through Friday. For free access during after school or weekend hours, students must be invited by their classroom teacher.
