The goal of the SYNC campaign is to encourage audiobook listening and literacy in young adults. Each week from May 15 – August 20, 2014, SYNC will offer two free audiobook downloads. The audiobook pairings will include a popular YA title and a classic that connects with the YA title’s theme and is likely to show up on a student’s summer reading lists. For example, Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge, a story based loosely on Beauty and the Beast, is paired with Sophocles’ classic, Oedipus the King.
These items are free to download and keep, and can be listened to on a computer or transferred to many popular portable devices. SYNC eAudiobooks are downloaded using OverDrive Media Console, available here.
