From the website:
SYNC is a program that gives away two complete audiobook downloads–a current Young Adult title paired thematically with a Classic or Required Summer Reading title–each week to listeners ages 13+ while SYNC is in session each summer.
Titles are delivered through the OverDrive Media Console. You can prepare for the program by downloading the software to your desktop and whichever device you anticipate listening on.
SYNC is dedicated to introducing the listening experience to the young adult audience and demonstrates that Required Reading can be completed by listening.
SYNC gives away 2 FREE audiobook downloads every week each summer. In 2014, 26 titles will be given away over 13 weeks starting May 15th.
SYNC audiobook titles are given away in thematic pairs. Young Adult focused titles are partnered with classics, required reading titles and other thematically appropriate Young Adult tiles to encourage literacy and listening in young people across the country.

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

The library has purchased an Easybib.com subscription. This will allow our students a more streamlined research process. They can now house their bibliography (works cited), notecards, outline, and link to their Google Docs paper all in one location.
Students who have not already created an account through their English classes may see Ms. Loy for an instruction sheet on how to sign up with our coupon code to receive the upgraded pro account.
