SYNC Audiobooks for Teens

What is SYNC?

What?

SYNC is a free summer audiobook program for teens 13+. Running April 27 – August 16, 2017, SYNC will give away two complete audiobook downloads a week (30 titles) – pairs of high interest titles, based on weekly themes.

Why?

SYNC is dedicated to introducing the listening experience to the teen audience and demonstrates that Required Reading can be completed by listening.

Who?

SYNC is sponsored by AudioFile Magazine and titles are delivered through the OverDrive app. Download the app in advance to whichever device you anticipate listening on and be ready to go!

How?

Simply sign-up to get notifications of when the FREE audiobook downloads are available. You can receive alerts by text message, email newsletter, or by visiting www.audiobooksync.com. Titles change every Thursday at 7am ET when the program is running.

Please Note: Signing up for these alerts will not send you the titles. The alerts will simply tell you when and where the title is available to download.
