Sync will once again be giving away free downloads of YA audiobooks this summer!
Each week from May 15 to August 13, Sync will have two titles available to download using the OverDrive Media Console. You do not need to be an OverDrive subscriber to download the OverDrive Media Console. The Console is available a for a variety of devices.
Each week there will be a current Young Adult title, which “will be a paired thematically with a Classic or Required Summer Reading title.” Check out the full schedule and set up alerts (right hand column) so you remember to download the titles you want to read. The titles must be downloaded during the week they are made available, but they can be listened to at any time.
There is also a tool kit with downloadable posters and bookmarks to help you promote the books in your library.
This is a great way to encourage participation in your Summer Reading Program, especially for teens who may be too busy to stop and read, or for teens who prefer to read on a device. Do you promote audiobooks for your Summer Reading Program? Share your suggestions in the comments!
