Listen to Books!

Playaway has replaced books on CD, or as some still refer to them, books on tape.  Made especially for multi-user environments, there is nothing to download and no need for wifi or additional player. This lightweight device, weighing only 2 ounces, is powered by a AAA battery (included) and equipped with a universal headphone jack. It is simply the easiest way to listen to audiobooks. Each Playaway can be checked out for 3 weeks.Browse available Playaway titles for children.

Bookpacks pair Playaway audiobooks with print books for a fun and educational read-along experience.  Both book and audiobook are included in the Bookpacks, so children can follow along in the book while listening to it.  Each Bookpack can be checked out for 3 weeks. Browse available Bookpacks for children and teens.
