Want a librarian to come to your class for database instruction?
1: Log into Office 365. This step sets you up for automatically logging into SORA.
2: Open a separate tab.
3: Go to our SORA collection in the separate tab - https://soraapp.com/library/nnjsnj
4: Find Gill St. Bernard’s on the drop-down menu.
• You can download SORA on your computer or phone or iPad – however you want to read. You can download it on more than one device if you’d like – let’s just begin with the device you’d like to use to read right now.
• Step 3 note – This is how you find our school with this link. If you download the app on your phone, you may search by school name (type in Gill) or zip code (07934). We are part of a group of libraries, so look hard on your screen to find our school.
5: You may now check out a book. Go to the Explore tab (binoculars) at the bottom of the app/screen to search by topic. At the top of the Explore page, there is a search box (click the magnifying glass if on the phone app) if you would like to look for a specific author or title or scroll down to see specific collections.
6: Email Mrs. Carruthers (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you cannot find the book you’d like to read (we may be able to order it for you) or if you cannot get onto SORA with your Office 365 (after you’ve tried these instructions and the instructions below).

This year you cannot yet browse the library, but I would still love for you to check out books. You can check out books by placing holds. If you place a hold on a book, you can then stop by the library the next day and I will have your holds for you in the library with your name on them, all checked out and ready to go. Stop by during break, or anytime between 10-11. See you there!
