Can I check out ebooks from the Hawaii State Public Library from my HIDOE Sora account?

Yes, as of April 6, 2020, all Hawaii Department of Education (HIDOE) students can connect their HIDOE Shared eBook Collection (aka Sora) account to the Hawaii State Public Library's OverDrive eBook Collection.  This feature provides students the ability to explore age-appropriate ebooks from the Hawaii State Public Library.
