We have Playaways!

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Starting today the East Longmeadow Public Library will begin offering Playaway – the first self-playing digital audio book.

playaway webbanner_runnerHalf the size of a deck of cards, Playaway is the simplest and best way to listen to a book on the go and – with no tapes or CDs – can hold up to eighty hours of HD Audio content on each unit.  With every title recorded in HD Audio, Playaway’s audio quality is unsurpassed.  Using clearly marked buttons, Playaway gives listeners the ability to move back and forth within or between chapters and alter the speed of a narrator’s voice.  It even has an automatic bookmark feature that remembers where you left off.  Additionally, Playaway has a universal headphone jack that works with almost any type of headphone or mobility accessory.playaway webbanner_cases

Playaways are shelved on the second floor of the library with the adult audio CDs. Try a Playaway today and let us know what you think.
