If you're a librarian in a public or school setting, whether or not your library subscribes to OverDrive, be sure your community understands how to update apps in general and why it's a necessary housekeeping task. The OverDrive app is, of course free; however, any app you have obtained legally includes access to its latest updates for free. You don't have to acquire it again, just update it, the way you make sure that you've checked for the latest weather news instead of assuming last summer's forecast remains in effect.
It's not too late to add your own comments to the many that we have gathered on the post-season survey. Please just add in the comments below! Thanks!

Week 5’s pair contains a series the AudioFile editors have had our ears on for some time.
AudioFile editors get to listen to new audiobooks all year long, and as we listen, we often note special recordings that would make excellent additions to SYNC. We also review the many reading lists, published by schools and public libraries, with their suggestions of titles teens would enjoy. By noticing shared themes between these two sources we discovered this week's likely pair.
You're invited to meet the people of Harlem in the 1930's and 1940's, and one very particular young man who would, from there, speak to the world. Take the opportunity to accept this week's invitation to Harlem through these voices.
