Audiobook Sync 2018

Every summer, the Audiobook Sync program gives away 2 audiobook downloads every week throughout the summer. Each week, two teen or classic novels with related themes are offered as free downloads. As long as you download those titles during the week they're offered, they're yours to keep. Audiobooks can be downloaded directly to your smartphone or iPad using the OverDrive app.

Sync kicks off next week on Thursday, April 26, with The Great War and A Study in Charlotte. See the Sync website for a full list of the books that will be given away this summer.

If you try audiobooks through Sync, like them, and want more, never fear. Through OverDrive, you can borrow audiobooks and eBooks directly to your devices using your C/W MARS library card from the Uxbridge Free Public Library or your BPL eCard. Talk to Ms. C or visit these tutorials for help setting up OverDrive or a BPL eCard.

May 10 Book Club Meeting: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

The last Book Club Pick for the 2017-2018 school year is The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. All are welcome to join in the discussion after school on Thursday, May 10. If you need a copy of the book, talk to Ms. Charpentier or visit the Uxbridge Free Public Library.

From Goodreads: "Trying to make sense of the horrors of World War II, Death relates the story of Liesel--a young German girl whose book-stealing and story-telling talents help sustain her family and the Jewish man they are hiding, as well as their neighbors."

Links for Mr. Bennett's Freshmen English Classes

Below are some recommended resources for your research paper on Night. Feel free to look at other databases and books, too!

Databases and Online Reference Materials
(The full list of available databases is here. From school you do not need a password. From home, the databases will ask for a password, so ask Ms. Charpentier or Mr. Bennett if you need it.)
  • Some books that may help you with your paper have been set aside in the library. You can search for other books on your topic here. Remember that all Mr. Bennett's freshmen classes are researching the same subject right now, you so will need to share resources.
