Wrapping Up SYNC 2022

At the tail of each SYNC season we reach out to participants to find out what listeners liked, how SYNC might have changed their audiobook listening, and how they shared information about this free annual program for teens. Thank you to all who helped us to gain insights on what’s working well, what you hope to hear in future seasons, and how listening is becoming a more significant part of your reading life. We would also like to take the opportunity here to thank OverDrive for hosting the delivery of these titles through their Sora app and author Elizabeth Fama for her ongoing support of this program.
