iPod? Blackberry? Cell phone? Laptop?
These days you can download books to just about any portable
device from services like MyMediaMall
The library also has hundreds of books on CD's and
cassettes. We even have preloaded iPods
available for checkout.
But if all
the different formats make your head spin, you're not
alone. That's why the library is proud to announce the
latest audiobook acquisition, Playaways!
Don't panic. These self-contained audiobooks require
nothing from you except earphones. And the library can
provide them to you for a small fee.
So what is a
Half the size of a deck of
cards, each Playaway includes one pre-loaded audiobook in its
own player. No special device is needed.
Each Playaway is ready-to-listen and is packaged in a
protective case, with instructions and a battery. Hit
the play button, and your listening adventure begins.
Place digital "bookmarks" to remember where you left off and
control the speed and volume of the narrator's voice. A
lanyard is provided to wear around your neck for portable
convenience. No computer skills, transfer fees,
subscription costs, memberships or Internet connections
needed. Check out a Playaway like any other library
material. How great is that!
The library currently owns
several titles for children, teens and adults. For a
