The OverDrive Training team is happy to partner with AudioFile magazine once again to bring you all the news and information you need to know about SYNC Audiobooks for Teens 2018, which returns this year on April 26th. SYNC is a free summer reading program that gives away two complete audiobook downloads a week, with a focus on pairs of high interest titles, based on weekly themes. It’s the perfect program to encourage teens to participate in so they don’t end up wandering into that most dreaded of all places to be while they’re on vacation – the Summer Slide…

Join us on Wednesday, April 4th to learn more about the program, including how and why titles are chosen and paired together, how it works in conjunction with the OverDrive app, why audiobooks play an important part in teen readings habits, and what you can do to promote SYNC at your school or library. The webcasts will be co-hosted by audiobook experts, Michele Cobb, SYNC Program Manager, and Francisca Goldsmith, Sound Learning Librarian.

We’ll deliver two webcast sessions at 11:00AM and 2:00PM EDT, and registration for both is available at OverDrive’s Resource Center on the library and K-12 Live Webcasts tabs.
