We now carry Playaway, all-in-one audio books!

Each Palm-Sized Unit is Permanently Loaded with an Audio Book to Make Listening as Simple as Pressing Play; Bestselling Titles Available

Half the size of a deck of cards, Playaway is the simplest way to listen to a book on the go and, with no tapes or CDs. With every title recorded in HD Audio, Playaway’s audio quality is unsurpassed. Using clearly marked buttons, Playaway gives listeners the ability to move back and forth within or between chapters and alter the speed of a narrator’s voice. It even has an automatic bookmark feature that remembers where you left off.  

Additionally, Playaway has a universal headphone jack that works with almost any type of headphone or mobility accessory. If you don’t own headphones, you can purchase a set at the library.

Our new collection includes:

The Death Trade by Jack Higgins
Switchblade by Michael Connelly
Children of the Revolution by Peter Robinson
The October List by Jeffrey Deaver
