Free audiobooks this summer!

For several years now, audiobook publishers have partnered with SYNC to provide free audiobook downloads each week throughout summer. The SYNC program pairs a current young adult title with a classic or required summer reading title. Each SYNC audiobook will be available for download for a period of 7 days, and once downloaded can be listened to at any time.

OverDrive is providing distribution services for all the SYNC audiobooks. The titles are all in MP3 format and can be downloaded via OverDrive Media Console for Windows, Mac and most mobile devices.

The SYNC program is a great way to introduce kids to audiobooks, and in turn those audiobook fans will look to your library as a source for more great audiobooks.
