What is a Playaway?

Playaways are the newest format for audio books.  There’s no need for a separate player — all you have to do is press “play” to start listening immediately.  They’re extremely portable, weigh about 2 oz. and fit in a pocket.  All you have to supply are earbuds and a AAA battery.  Kent District Library currently has about 100 children’s titles available in the playaway format.  To get a list of titles,  just do a keyword search in our catalog and type “playaway and juvenile” in the search box.  Samples of titles include all-time favorites such as “Bridge to Terabithia,” “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,” “Peter Pan,” and “The Golden Compass.”
