The Yorktown Public Library is excited to introduce Playaways! Playaways are the first self-playing digital audio book – adding the innovative digital format to our existing audio book collection.
Not an MP3 or CD player and not software, Playaways are the self-contained audio equivalent of a book. Playaways are half the size of a deck of cards, and require only user-supplied earphones and one AAA battery. Using clearly marked buttons, Playaways gives listeners the option of placing digital bookmarks and controlling the speed of a narrator’s voice, all while easily moving both forward and back through audio book selections that can range from six to twenty-four hours. The Playaways’ universal headphone jack works with almost any type of headphone or mobility accessory.
Playaways circulate for 28 days. If you do not have your own earphones, we have them available to purchase for $1.00 at the circulation desk.
