For several years now, audiobook publishers have partnered with SYNC to provide free audiobooks downloads each week throughout summer. The SYNC program pairs a current young adult title with a classic or required summer reading title. Each SYNC audiobook will be available for download for a period of 7 days, and once downloaded can be listened to at any time.
OverDrive is providing distribution services for all the SYNC audiobooks. The titles are all in MP3 format and can be downloaded via OverDrive Media Console for Windows, Mac and most mobile devices.
To help promote SYNC, we’ve created an email template for you to use. All you have to do is paste this image into the body of an email, add a hyperlink to http://www.audiobooksync.com , and send to your patron email list. Additional promotional materials available in the SYNC tool kit.
The SYNC program is a great way to introduce teens to audiobooks, and in turn those audiobook fans will look to your library as a source for more great audiobooks. Keep a lookout on our blog for ways to promote audiobooks in June in honor of Audiobook Month.
