3 summer reading programs to take advantage of before they come to an end
Summer is flying by and as the long, warm nights start to come to an end so do the reading programs we’ve been enjoying on our various road trips, vacations and beach hang outs. Thankfully, there’s still time to take advantage of these events before the leaves start to change and we pack away those tank tops and shorts for good.
Audiobook SYNC program
Since May, Audiofile Magazine has been offering up two free audiobooks a week for users of the OverDrive app to download to their devices. These titles are yours to keep for as long as you like. Each Thursday,http://audiobooksync.com/ is updated with two audiobook titles that are paired to match a specific theme. Once the next Thursday arrives, those titles are replaced by two new audiobooks. The program lasts through August 18, so even if you haven’t taken advantage yet there’s still time to get some great, free audiobook content.
TD Summer Reading Club
The TD Summer Reading club is a fun (and free!) program for kids held by participating Canadian public libraries. By signing up at your local library, readers can enjoy both physical and digital books, write reviews of books and interact with their fellow library patrons. Co-created and delivered by 2,000 public libraries across Canada, development of this national, bilingual program is led by Toronto Public Library in partnership with Library and Archives Canada.
Start School Like a Champion
OverDrive has partnered with Scholastic and a number of participating sponsors to make eBooks available for free when shoppers purchase any participating product from brands like Smucker’s, Kellogg’s and numerous others.
