A lot of you may have heard of Playaways by now — those cute little audio players that have a whole book already loaded on each one! Just press play and hear an entire book read out loud to you. They’re perfect for walks to school, bus rides, summer trips, or some pre-bedtime listening. Ours come with earbuds, or you can use your own!

To see a complete list of our books in Playaway format, just search the word “playaway” in the library catalog. To narrow down to J Fiction titles such as Diary of a Wimpy Kid and 39 Clues, search “playaway juvenile fiction.” And to narrow down to just your favorite teen titles, such as Twilight and Mockingjay, try “playaway young adult.”

Of course, any time you search for a title, you can type the word “playaway” in the search box along with the title. If you get a result, bingo! You can press play, slip it in your pocket, and enjoy!
