Sick of Books on CD? Playaways are Here!

Books on CD (or BCD’s) as a format have significant drawbacks. They require the listener to change disks often and can easily be damaged, making for frustrated patrons and librarians.

Enter the Playaway! This handy gadget is an all-in-one audiobook that comes pre-loaded with content and weighs only two ounces! And it automatically remembers where you last stopped listening! Simply plug your headphones or car audio cord into the universal jack, press play, and you're off! 

There are about 150 Playaways in the system now with more being added monthly. Just type "Playaway" into the search box in our online catalog to locate Playaways and place holds. Happy listening!
