What's a Playaway?

THIS is a Playaway.

It's a portable digital audiobook - no need for a cassette or CD player, or even a computer. Just plug in headphones and listen away! You can even walk around the house, the neighborhood, take it while traveling; a Playaway is always ready to go!

The Warren Public Libraries have lots of Playaways to offer you, including:

The Purpose-Driven Life by Rick Warren (Playaway 248.4 W)
Spanish: The Complete Language Course by Henry N. Raymond (Playaway 468 S)
Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare (Playaway 822.33 S)
For One More Day by Mitch Albom (Playaway Fic Albom)
The Story of My Life by Helen Keller (Playaway Bio Keller)

And we have a great selection for kids and teens, too!

The Watsons Go to Birmingham--1963 by Christopher Paul Curtis (Playaway JFic Curtis)
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis (Playaway JFic Lewis)
Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer (Playaway YA Fic Colfer)
Eldest by Christopher Paolini (Playaway YA Fic Paolini)

Each Playaway checks out for three weeks, and comes with a AAA battery and a lanyard to keep the Playaway easily accessible. You can use your own headphones, or purchase a pair of earbuds at the front desk for $1.00. If we don't have the one you want, we can also borrow them from other libraries in the Cooperative - just ask your reference librarian!
