Free Downloadable Audiobooks from SYNC

Downloadable audiobooks are perfect for this time of year when the weather is getting warmer and we're thinking about all the places we want to go.

OverDrive makes it easy to download content before you go, and this summer they are partnering with SYNC to offer downloadable audiobooks that are yours to keep.



SYNC is a free summer audiobook program for teens 13+. Starting April 25, 2019, SYNC will give away two complete audiobook downloads a week, based on weekly themes. Check out a complete list of titles available this summer.   


SYNC introduces a variety of audiobook experiences for teens to demonstrate that reading can be completed by listening.


SYNC is sponsored by AudioFile Magazine and titles are delivered through the OverDrive app. Before you claim a book, make sure you download the OverDrive app to the device you're planning to use to listen to it.


Sign-up to get notifications when the FREE audiobook downloads are available. You can receive alerts by text message, email newsletter, or by visiting Titles change every Thursday at 7am ET when the program is running.

Please Note: Signing up for these alerts will not send you the titles. The alerts will only tell you when and where the title is available to download.
