Audiobooks are a great way for students to hear compelling stories, increase their vocabulary, and develop strong listening skills. At BUSD we strive to provide a variety of audiobook resources for all readers.

A partnership with the Berkeley Public Library allows BUSD students to access BPL's collections of audiobooks and ebooks without needing a library card.

All students grades 3 through 12 can access Sora using their accounts.

Tales2Go offers over 7500 audiobook titles for students. All titles in their catalog are always available.

All BUSD students have personal accounts, accessed through their school, using their first and last name and the password "tales".
