WOHS LMC Celebrates PRIDE Month!
Virtual Field Trips: where you go is up to you!
Pick the destination of your dreams. Leave your passport in the drawer, find a comfortable place to be, and get ready to go. It's not magic or science fiction -- AND -- you can be safely socially distant. That's the glory of VIRTUAL FIELD TRIPS.
Getting your hands on the perfect book these days can be a little challenging. Sure, you can find a copy of Treasure Island, by Robert Louis Stevenson, but what about a book written a bit more recently?
A few weeks ago we introduced you to Sora -- the reading app that connects you to WOHS and WOPL ebook and audiobook collections, as well as Sora Sweet Reads. Well, your choices just expanded with SYNC!
Sync is offering 13 weeks of free audiobook listening for teens.
Each week two new titles become available. Here's what's up this week:
There are other titles as well offered through Sync. Let us know what you think!
Any issues accessing Sora or Sync? We are an email away -- just get in touch and we will help you out!
