Audiobooks the easy way

When it comes to listening to an audiobook, nothing is easier than a “Playaway.”  Simply plug your headphones in and press play. No downloading.  No syncing.  No other devices needed.

We have a large selection of titles to choose from, including assigned novels from your English and Humanities classes, with many more non-curricular titles for recreational “listening.”  Many Playaways come in a kit combining the audiobook with a print copy of the novel, allowing you to listen and read at the same time, if that is something that helps you. This can be especially useful for school assigned texts.

Come down to the School Library to have a look, or check out our catalog at
