Walton County School District has a subscription for OverDrive, which provides a variety of eBooks and audiobooks for students and staff. To access these resources, log in to Classlink (by clicking the image above) and look for the SORA app.
Walton County School District is excited to announce our partnership with the Walton County Public Library to provide our students with even more digital resources! In addition to eBooks and audiobooks purchased by WCSD, students now have access to digital resources through the local library. Audiobooks and eBooks purchased by WCSD and the public library are available to students via the Sora platform (in Classlink).
Since the entire public library's digital collection will be available, students must return a permission slip prior to obtaining access. We encourage parents to monitor their student's activity and set preferences (using the instructions provided in the parent letters below) to determine the content available to your child/children. Students that return permission forms to Mrs. English in the media center will be given library card numbers that will allow access to the public library's digital resources.
In addition to eBooks and audiobooks, the public library's digital collection includes access to Knowledge City, Universal Class, and Creative Bug. These resources may be accessed on the Walton County Public Library's website - www.youseemore.com/walton.
If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. English (firstname.lastname@example.org).
