Porter students are encouraged to read this summer for pleasure, as well as to keep their skills sharp.  The Porter Library will not be available for check-out over the summer or during Learning Lab Camps.  However, we have many eBook options, as well as encourage students to participate in and access the PWC Public Library programs and materials.

eBook Options:

 CleverSora reading app
Students can log on to their Office 365 email accounts, log in and then go into the Clever waffle to choose books for the Sora app to read online on any device that receives internet.  They are able to access the ebooks that are available through Prince William County Public Schools, as well as the PWC Public Library's select eBook collection.

Watch the video here for step-by-step directions for students to access Sora.

You can also visit the PWC Public Library this summer and participate in their Summer Reading Program.  See their flyer here.
