SYNC is a free summer audiobook program for teens. Returning April 30, 2020, SYNC will give away two complete audiobooks a week – pairs of high interest titles, based on weekly themes.
Accessing SYNC books couldn’t be easier since our district already uses SORA. Here’s what you need to do:
- Go to https://www.audiobooksync.com/ and enter your credentials:
- firstname.lastname@example.org for students
- email@example.com for staff
- Open your SORA app and click “Add a Public Library” in the upper right.
- Search for audiobooksync and add it. (While you’re there, you may as well add the Anchorage Public Library to your app as well!)
- Sign into SYNC, and that’s it! You will now have multiple libraries in your SORA app, and the option to download two free audio books each week between April 30th and July 29th.
These free audio books are yours to keep – they will not expire!
I’m especially excited to see 57 Bus on the list, as this was a popular freshman book club title at West this semester. We borrowed copies from all over the district, but there weren’t enough to go around for everyone.
Here is the complete list of titles for the 2020 season – happy listening!
