      Getting your hands on the perfect book these days can be a little challenging.  Sure, you can find a copy of Treasure Island, by Robert Louis Stevenson, but what about a book written a bit more recently?

    A few weeks ago we introduced you to Sora -- the reading app that connects you to WOHS and WOPL ebook and audiobook collections, as well as Sora Sweet Reads.  Well, your choices just expanded with SYNC!    

    Sync audiobooks

    Sync is offering 13 weeks of free audiobook listening for teens. 

    Each week two new titles become available.  Here's what's up this week:

    SYNC

    There are other titles as well offered through Sync.  Let us know what you think! 

    Any issues accessing Sora or Sync?  We are an email away -- just get in touch and we will help you out!
