PLAYAWAYS are here!

I’m so happy to share that the library has acquired seven titles on Playaway! What does this mean? Playaways are self-playing, digital audiobooks that are read by professional actors and pre-loaded on a durable, iPod-style Playaway unit. They have authentic book cover art on one side, and intuitive controls on the other: adjustable volume, voice speed control, chapter forward / reverse features, and an LCD screen with chapter information and battery life display. Each Playaway comes in a plastic case with a spare AAA battery. Earbud headphones are available in the library for $3.00.hunger_games

The titles that are now available on Playaway are:

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie

Compound by S.A. Bodeen

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton

Need by Carrie Jones

Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

Playaways can be checked out for three weeks, just like a regular book. Listen to the Playaway alone or read along with the novel. And please remember to complete the survey inside the Playaway case and return it along with the audiobook, by the due date. The survey will help me decide which new Playaways to purchase for the library!
