Take a Playaway on the Go!

Playaways is a self-contained audiobook player, about the size of a deck of cards.
Put in a battery, plug in your headphones, and you are ready to listen anywhere!
You can also listen to Playaways in your car with an auxilary cable.
Ask at the circulation desk if they have an auxilary cable you may borrow.
Drop by the library and we'll be happy to show you our Playaways and how they work!
