The SYNC summer audiobook program returns for its 10th year on April 25. OverDrive is happy to partner with AudioFile magazine to bring you all the news and information you need to know, including a special webcast.

What is SYNC?

SYNC is a free program for teens 13+ that will give away two complete audiobook downloads every week through July, pairing high-interest titles with weekly themes. It’s the perfect program to encourage teens to read more 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 Tuesday, April 23 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 reading 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 Sound Learning Librarian Francisca Goldsmith.

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