Playaway is a simple way to listen to audio on the go. Each Playaway is an MP3 player with the audio book pre-loaded on it. No cassettes, no CDs, no downloads. Each ultra-portable Playaway weighs only two ounces and has a universal jack that works with almost any type of headphone or mobility accessory. Just add a AAA battery (if needed), plug in your earbuds, and enjoy. For more information, ask a youth services librarian.
