Oneida-Herkimer-Madison (OHM) BOCES School Library System and Mid-York Library System have formed a new partnership to increase access to more ebooks and e-audiobooks for students, according to an announcement.

The collaboration aims to promote literacy and digital learning by combining schools’ and libraries’ digital reading resources in one app.

The partnership will provide access to thousands of age-appropriate titles for students’ use inside the classroom, at home and anywhere 24/7, the announcement noted. The access, through Sora which is the new student reading app for OHM BOCES, enables students to borrow the school’s collection of classroom and pleasure reading, and also access Mid York Library System’s juvenile and young adult digital collection.
