SORA - The Digital Library


SORA the school’s digital library. The Armidale Catholic Schools Office provides access to a large number of ebooks and audiobooks that can be accessed through the SORA reading app. This free app can be downloaded onto devices or accessed through their website (click on the link). YOUR CHILD WILL NEED THEIR SCHOOL USERNAME & PASSWORD TO ACCESS THIS APP.  The children use their username and password on their devices at school.


Once you’ve found the App, you will need to search for the ACEN library (Australian Catholic Education Network) and then enter your child’s school username and password when prompted. The books your child can access are filtered by their school login details which means younger students are unable to view secondary texts. For a quick video tutorial of how to use this App, watch the video here



There is a section for PREMIER'S READING CHALLENGE BOOKS for each year level. The children can borrow & read books for the PREMIER'S READING CHALLENGE during the holidays on SORA.


Happy reading!



Our school has a subscription to World Book Online! This means you have FREE access from home or on the go with any internet-connected device.
