Help your teen discover the joy of audiobooks with the SYNC summer reading program!

If you have a teen who loves books (or one who you think would enjoy the world of audiobooks), there’s a FREE summer reading program just for them!

SYNC is a free summer audiobook program for teens ages 13 and up, and now it’s back for its 13th year of free content! Registration for the 2022 summer season is now open and FREE to all teens 13+.

This year’s summer reading program will span 16 weeks and last through August 17th. Each week, SYNC participants will receive two thematically paired audiobooks delivered through Sora, the student reading app from OverDrive. By the end of the program, teens will have had the opportunity to listen to a total of 32 new titles!

For an idea of the kind of audiobooks your teen will be offered, you can head on over here to see the complete list of titles available this year.

If you’d like to have your teen participate in SYNC, you can register them for the program here. Then, download the Sora app (iOS or Android) on the device your teen will use for listening to their audiobooks. The Sora app is completely free, and you do not need to be affiliated with a school to use Sora with the SYNC summer reading program.

Detailed instructions for setting up the Sora app and adding the free SYNC titles to your teen’s reading library can be found here.

The free audiobooks are available to teens worldwide, and the titles change every Thursday at 12 AM ET. Once they go live, each title is only available to load for a period of 7 days. After they’ve been loaded into the Sora app, the titles are your teen’s to keep! 🙌

    Adults can do this too. I asked a few years ago. Anyways, I have gotten several good audiobooks from here.

    Several books appear to be pretty left leaning.
