• MVUSD E-Book Library

    All students and staff in the Murrieta Valley Unified School District have access to our e-book collection through the SORA App powered by Overdrive.  Our collection is curated and designed to meet the recreational and academic reading needs of our students.  There are over 4,000 e-books and audio books for students and staff to check out.  It is available all year long, including winter, spring and summer breaks when students are not in school. 

    Our e-book collection is intended to compliment your child's school library and provide them with more opportunities to read on their own.  As we prepare our students for college and careers it is important they are proficient reading in both print and electronic format.  Our collections includes a wide variety of:

    • Picture Books
    • Read Alongs (picture books that are professionally narrated and text is highlighted to help emerging readers)
    • Popular Fiction
    • Graphic Novels
    • Non-fiction 
    • Audio Books
