PUSD Students: You can check out library books in Sora!

There’s a new way for PUSD students to get access to free eBooks and audiobooks in the library’s collection, and it doesn’t even require a Pasadena Public Library card! Through a partnership between Overdrive and Sora, and Pasadena Public Library and PUSD, students can now check out books from the library’s Overdrive collection using the Sora app on their PUSD Chromebooks.

There are a few steps to set up your Chromebook to access Pasadena Public Library books, so we created a helpful YouTube video to show you how. After you complete setup, you will never have to do those steps again. You’ll just enjoy quick and easy access to the great books in our collection!

I'm a youth services librarian working in the Children's Room at the Pasadena Central Library. I purchase juvenile nonfiction books for all sites, juvenile Spanish books for all sites, and juvenile DVDs for the Central Library. I do a lot of programs with school-age kids, including Lucha Libros, writing workshops, and STEAM/science programs. I also do 16 weeks of Infant/Toddler Storytimes each year. I love what I do, working with kids of all ages to inspire them to learn and use their curiosity and imaginations. Outside of my work at the library, I am also the author of a book on creative writing activities for kids.
