Free Audiobook Downloads from Sync: 2020 Season

Today marks the opening of this summer’s Sync program, an annual offering of free YA audiobooks sponsored by the audiobook review magazine, AudioFile. As in year’s past, the Sync program will offer two complete audiobook downloads a week, paired by theme. Sign up on the Sync website to be alerted of the newest weekly offerings by email or text.

You’ve heard us tout Sync’s praises in the past (Maine-based AudioFile has been offering this generous program for over ten years), but this year it is particularly welcome as we all seek digital resources during the COVID-19 closures. Thank you, AudioFile, for another great lineup of popular and classic titles!
