Need Help?

  • Do you have a question about research, eBooks, using our databases, or anything else library-related?  Email Mrs. Gottlieb or Mr. Hayward.  We are generally online from 8 am - 2 pm M-F, and will respond to your email as soon as possible.

    Tips for logging into Sora:

    • Be sure to use all lower case for your last name
    • If there is a Captcha box, check it before hitting enter.

    You can log in but can't open your book?  Try disconnecting and reconnecting to your Wi-Fi.  If that still doesn't work, see if you can open it on another device, such as a PC, tablet or phone (you will need to download the Sora app from your app store for mobile devices).
