Tri-County Library teams up with Mabank ISD
6 Oct 2021
MABANK–As educators seek more creative ways to support students’ learning, a key resource for schools is the local public library. Now, Tri-County Library and Mabank Independent School District (MISD) have formed an innovative new partnership to increase students’ access to ebooks and digital audiobooks by combining the library’s and school’s digital reading resources in one app. This Public Library CONNECT partnership is facilitated by OverDrive, the popular digital reading platform serving both the library and school.
The partnership provides safe access to thousands of age-appropriate titles for students’ use inside the classroom, at home and anywhere 24/7. Through Sora, the new student reading app for Mabank ISD, students can now borrow from both the school’s collection of classroom and pleasure reading titles as well as from Tri-County Library’s juvenile, young adult and adult digital collections. Sora will automatically filter content to only include age-appropriate titles depending on each student’s grade level.
