2. In Sora, if you can see a big blue button that says Lowther Hall, click that button!

3. If you can’t see Lowther Hall, then click “Not your school? Switch schools”, which brings up the screen below.

If you are at school, click the blue button “Yes, use my location”.

If you are not at school (at home or elsewhere), click “No, I’ll search for my school”. On the next page, type “Lowther Hall” into the search bar and select Lowther Hall:

4. On the next screen, select “Lowther Hall Anglican School” – ticked green in the image below.

Please note: Do not select the option "Lowther Hall Anglican School (Simple Login)" - it will not allow you to login.

5. Click the blue button: “Sign in using Lowther Hall Anglican School”

6. Then sign in using your usual Lowther Hall username and password. This is the same one you would use to log into your school email account or to sign into Lowther Link. Please speak to the IT Helpdesk if you need help with this login.

7. Browse the Explore tab and borrow a book. Your book will open so you can start reading right away.

8. Close the book and go to your Shelf to see all the books or audiobook you have on loan.

   From there, you can:

  • Tap Open Book or Open Audiobook to read or listen to the book.
  • Tap Options to renew or return the book, get to your notes and highlights, and more.

Sora syncs between whichever version you use it in, app or browser, so you can easily keep reading/listening even if you switch devices.
