"Press Play and Go"

Filed under: audiobooks — Tags: — SCPL Teens @ 2:48 pm

The library is adding a new way to listen to books. Try listening to your favorite books on a Playaway!

Playaways are only about the size of a small MP3 player, so you can take these little audiobooks with you wherever you go. All you need is a pair of earbuds! If you don’t own earbuds already, you can buy a set from the library for $1.00 each.

How to use Playaways.

Find Playaways in the online catalog: Type Playaway into the empty search box then choose Subject from the drop down Search menu.
