Has your library participated in Sync?
Between May 30th – August 21st Sync will be giving away two free audiobook downloads, each week, for listeners 13 years of age or older. This service began in 2010 to promote literacy among young adults. As an alternative to listening to music, these downloads are MP3 formats that operate through Over Drive’s Media Console and are compatible with both Mac and Windows operating systems. Once the title is downloaded, it can be listened to at any time. However, they will only be made available, for download, for only 7 days.
How Do I Sign-up? Go to the right column and sign-up to get notifications of when the audiobook downloads are available by text message, email newsletter, or by simply following the SYNC blog. Please note that signing up for these alerts will not send you the titles. The alerts will only tell you when and where the title is available to download. Click here for a schedule.
Tip: If you would like to promote this free service in your library, the Sync site offers a toolkit for Librarians & Educators with a host of resources.
