Digital Resources

Our digital collection of ebooks and audiobooks is available to students and faculty by signing into our online catalog at with their library user name and password.

Maximizing our continued partnership with The New York Public Library, all students and faculty have access to Sora, a reading app that allows users to search multiple public library collections (individuals must have their own public library cards) using their Google usernames and passwords after inputting our school set up code.

Beginning this fall, and also available through Sora, St. Luke’s has access to an additional collection of ebooks through a newly formed consortium for participating members of the Hudson Valley Library Association (HVLA). The collection is curated by a committee of Independent School Librarians and intended to support Reader Engagement.

Students and faculty may also access research materials and additional resources through GSVL, The Grace Sawyer Virtual Library-Google Classroom using their Google usernames and passwords. Resources are continually revised and include access and instructions to, Sora, St. Luke’s School database subscriptions,  free digital ebooks and other resources.
