SYNC Summer Audiobooks

School's out for the summer! If you have a teen in the house, tell them about SYNC summer audiobooks. Once a week, 2 curated audiobooks are available to download for free with the OverDrive app. A library card isn't required, and the audiobooks can be kept and listened to forever.

SYNC pairs weekly titles that appeal to the 13+ age group. The audiobooks help slow the dreaded Summer Slide and will entertain teens at the same time. Users can sign up for text and email alerts to get new title reminders.

For new OverDrive users, the process is easy:

  1. Download the OverDrive app to your mobile device or desktop
  2. Pick an audiobook to download from the SYNC site
  3. Head to the Bookshelf in the OverDrive app.
  4. Click the book you want to hear and press Play.

If you're already an OverDrive user, these titles will display under the "Audiobook Sync" in My Libraries, not the Austin Public Library.

Have questions? SYNC has a helpful FAQ. You can also contact OverDrive Support or Ask a Librarian.
