What a wonderful summer of SYNC we've had together! Thanks to the authors and narrators who kept us engaged for 14 weeks!
We've enjoyed not just the listening--and the sharing of listening pairs with you--but also the opportunity to connect with old and new listeners who share SYNC with the youth in your schools, libraries, clubs, and families! Thank you for posting to our Twitter stream and Facebook page!
Before we pack our bags and head back into the upcoming schoolyear, we'd love to hear more from you about what you thought of this year's FREE SYNC selections, pairings, and toolkit materials. Please submit your responses to the survey before the end of the month.
And please post your candid shots of listeners and listening promotion, either on Twitter, hashtagging for #sync15, or on our Facebook page. If you've created Pinterest boards, Tumblrs, or web pages about AudiobookSYNC, please let us know where we can find them!
We'll be back in 2016, with a whole new library of FREE options for your listeners and you. Thank you to the generous audiobook production companies, and to OverDrive and AUDIOFILE MAGAZINE for sponsoring this fantastic time we've all had together.
Now, if you want to learn more about listening and literacy, do go explore the APA's Sound Learning site, where you'll find information on the research connecting listening to literacy, guidance in audiobook programming in the library and the classroom, and lots of great listening lists. Keep in touch! And keep listening!
