How to check out a physical Book…

Deliveries in action!

Resources

Sora Reading App

All students and staff can now access Denver Public Library ebooks through our very own Sora App. You do not need a Denver Public Library Card to do so; you just need to go into DPS Sora app and use your DPS login. Here is a short video to show you how.

And you can now request any book that is not currently in our DPS library system by filling out the form (most requests are honored within one day!!)

Lastly, it is important to note that if a book is already “borrowed” in our system, you can place a hold on it, and it will automatically be sent to your account as soon as it becomes available. Here is how to place a hold: https://help.soraapp.com/en-us/5010.htm

This space features several 3D printers, hands-on tools, space to create and a spill-resistant floor.  It is a the perfect place for project-based learning!  There is space for up to 15 people in the room.  If your class is larger, consider reserving the adjacent Collaboration Zone & Makerspace Overflow.
