  1. In Sora, open the menu (in the top-right corner).

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Can I use Libby or the OverDrive app for the SYNC program instead of the Sora app?
The SYNC program will only work with Sora, the student reading app from OverDrive. You don’t
need to be affiliated with a school to use Sora with the SYNC program.


When does each SYNC week start?
New titles will be available each Thursday at midnight Eastern time (ie, 12:01am ET). You can
access the titles for 7 days, until the next Wednesday at 11:59pm.


How long is each audiobook available in Sora?
To keep each audiobook, you must tap Borrow. Each audiobook is available to borrow for one
week. Once you’ve borrowed an audiobook, it stays on your Shelf in Sora indefinitely.


I missed last week’s audiobooks. Can I still get them?
No, our agreement with publishers is that the audiobooks are only available during their
featured week. If you miss an audiobook, we suggest borrowing it from your local library or
visiting the title’s page on the SYNC website for purchasing options.

I have students/patrons who love audiobooks. May I give them copies of my audiobook in
class or reading/listening group?

SYNC audiobooks are for your personal use only and may not be distributed to others. Please
encourage students/patrons to sign up for the SYNC program and download their own copies.


Can I delete the titles from my device?
Yes, you can delete the downloaded audiobook files in Sora if you need to free up space on your
device. If you delete the files, the title will stay on your Shelf, and you’ll be able to download
and access it again.
To delete a downloaded audiobook’s files, tap the checkmark next to the title on your Shelf,
Stream (when online), then select Yes, delete download.
PLEASE NOTE: If you RETURN an audiobook, it will be completely removed from your account
in Sora and you’ll lose access to it once its SYNC availability period is over. We don’t
recommend doing this!


Can I access the audiobook’s MP3 files?
No, you need to download and listen to the audiobooks entirely in the Sora app. There’s no
option to download separate MP3 files.
