FROM TOPEKA LIBRARY -- Playaway Views are an all-in-one video player offering simple and immediate access to video content with ultimate portability. 3.5 inch full color LCD screen with an external speaker as well as a headphone jack. Each video player holds several hours of content. Powered by a rechargeable lithium battery (charger is included with player). Playaways are created by a company called Findaway World.
We are one of seven public libraries in the United States to receive these new Playaway Views. We have titles from Sesame Workshop (lots of Elmo!) and also picture books from Weston Woods and Spoken Arts.
We also have Playaways: an all-in-one audio book. One audio book is loaded onto the Playaway device, which looks like a little mp3 player. Just plug in your headphones, press play and you’re good to go. We have 461 Playaways with titles for adults and kids in a wide variety of fiction and nonfiction. Playaway is the simplest way to listen to audio on the go. Each Playaway comes with the digital content already pre-loaded on it and a battery to make it play. Simply plug in ear buds and enjoy.
Playaway Views are located in the Youth Services room at the library. You can check out a Playaway View, one per library card, for a checkout period 14 days.
Turn it on. Press Play. It’s that simple. Enjoy it! Use it! Take it with you on planes, and trains, and automobiles too! Visit http://playaway.com/survey12 and share your thoughts about the Playaway View.
