Find free books at your fingertips

Students and staff can celebrate National Library Week by checking out an ebook from the Dallas ISD electronic library.

Although students might not have access to physical books, they can still check out reading material on a smart phone, tablet or computer. A wide selection of ebooks is accessible through Dallas ISD’s electronic library and the local public library simply by downloading the Sora app, available for iOS and Android devices.

Dallas ISD staff also have access to the district’s library with their employee ID by downloading the app. Users can access to the public library, whether in Dallas or other cities, through the app with a current library card, which can be obtained electronically in most cities. Dallas ISD staff who don’t live in Dallas can get a temporary Dallas Public Library card online with their district ID.
