June is Audio Book Month

June is National Audio Book Month and it’s a great time to discover our growing collection of Playaway audio books. The Friends of the Library have recently donated to the library’s popular collection. A Playaway is the simplest way to listen to an audio book. It is an MP3 player that comes preloaded with one book and takes one regular AAA battery to play. We even have rechargeable batteries you can check out, so you can start listening as soon as you get to your earphones. You just simply plug in your earphones and enjoy. Playaways allow bookmark insertions to remember where you stopped listening and you can adjust the speed of the narrator’s voice. They work with most headphones, speakers or car adapters.  Our collection includes novels, biographies and more.  Playaways are available for 4-week check out and are also available from other libraries via LINKcat. For a list of titles available in Playaway format, search LINKcat using the keyword Playaway.
