Enjoy an Audiobook Wherever You Are

PlayawayTravelling, active, or on the go this summer? You can make sure you always have an audiobook with you by checking out the Troy Public Library's Playaway collection -- a fun and exciting new audiobook format that is portable and easy to take anywhere.

Playaways are preloaded digital audiobooks that are roughly the size and weight of a cassette tape (remember those?). They have easy-to-use controls that allow you to fast forward or rewind, and adjust the reading speed and volume. Add your own earbuds or headphones (and occasionally a AAA battery) and you are good to go. Or, with a car adapter, you can listen to Playaways while driving.

Whether you are relaxing poolside, sitting on the beach, grilling, gardening, or traveling, you can enjoy an audiobook without changing disks. For a list of the Playaways that are in the Library collection, click here. There are many fiction and nonfiction titles to choose from. Check our a Playaway today today and enjoy it wherever you go.
