Welcome to Wilson’s Learning Commons Page!  My name is Lesley Masuk and I am the new Learning Commons Facilitator at Wilson. This year we have had a 'glow up' in the Learning Commons and are excited to share the space with all of our students. Students are always welcome to check out books, study, write exams or hang out. We also have makerspace items we can check out to your homeroom teacher.

Sora  - click the Astronaut!!  Sora helps give K-12 students more access to ebooks, audiobooks and  school's digital collection | the Learning Counsel

Every student has access to SORA at no cost to them. This is an on-line library to access e-books and audio books. Once you download the books onto the app you can read them everywhere, you do not need Wi-Fi.  

To log in - Download the free app or enter soraapp.com in your browser:  APPLE for Android click here: ANDROID

Find your school - Type in Lethbridge, click the Alberta Shared Collection, then choose the Lethbridge School District #51, then using your school log-in - Firstname.lastname##@lethsd.ab.ca (remember your graduation year!).

Use “explore” to find books

Use “shelf” to manage your books

SORA is great for many reasons!  You never have to worry about overdue or fines.  The e-books are returned automatically.  You can still renew if needed and you can take out 10 out at a time! You can also access any public library you are a member of.  Just go to "Add Library" on the right side of the screen.

You can get a Public Library card on-line and for FREE this year!  You can also link it with SORA so when you search SORA for a book, it will search the public library as well.  Plus the Lethbridge Public Library has a TON of things to do on-line!  Check it out!
