Now hear this: New ways to listen to books!
A Playaway is a new type of audiobook. Half the size of a deck of
cards, it can be used anywhere. Each Playaway includes one
pre-loaded audiobook packaged in a protective case, instructions,
a battery, and a lanyard. Patrons are required to supply
their own earphones or purchase them at the
Circulation Desk for a small fee. The Playaway
allows listeners to place digital “bookmarks”
to remember where they left off, and to control
the speed of the narrator’s voice. Find
Playaways in the Adult, Young Adult and
Children’s Audiobook collections.
See our current list of Playaways.
The library now has iPod Nanos available for checkout. Each iPod is preloaded with several audiobooks by genre or theme, including Bestsellers, Mystery,Biography, History, Self-Help, Adventure and more. A protective case, battery and instructions are provided. Patrons are required to supply their own earphones or purchase them at the Circulation Desk for a small fee.
