Free Young Adult Audiobook Downloads from Sync
You don't have to be a teenager to love YA literature. The online community Sync is offering free weekly YA audiobook downloads for the rest of the summer—one popular title and one classic each week. Participate in online discussions around each book, or just enjoy the audiobooks on your own. (Here's the title list and info for librarians: http://www.audiobooksync.com/info.html)
The Sync audiobook downloads require OverDrive Media Console, but they are separate from our Digital Download Center Collection. There are no hold lists and no expiration dates for the Sync books—to get a link to download the current week's title you just have to enter a name and email address. The downloads are MP3 Audiobooks, so they are compatible with Mac, PC, and most MP3 players (iPods too!).
