Looking to put some high quality audios in the hands of your teens this summer? Check out SYNC! This is a partnership between AudioFile Magazine, young adult authors, and audio providers including Listening Library, HarperAudio, Recorded Books and many more (powered by OverDrive).
Each week throughout the summer - beginning May 30th - the following audios will be available for download. These are free and they are yours to keep. A librarian/educator’s tool kit is available HERE. I’ve not done it before, simply because I didn’t know about it, but I’ve signed up for it this summer. So far, I haven’t gotten inundated with emails and no annoying advertisements. Hopefully that continues, because this looks really promising! Does anyone else have experience with this program?
