Teen Playaways

What is a Playaway?
The best way to describe a Playaway is that it is sort of like an MP3 player with an audiobook already loaded onto it. The playaway is all ready to go once you check it out, so all you have to do is put in 1 AAA battery and headphones and listen. In other words, it's sort of like an IPod for books.
Here's an example of what a Playaway looks like:
The cool thing about Playaways?
We've now got them at the Cape May County Library!

Keri!
Yeah, the playaways are pretty neat. They're like a personalized IPod.

You should still check out a playaway. I ordered John Green just for you and your gang!
