Unlike CDs, audio cassettes or downloads, Playaways do not need a separate player. Instead, Playaways come pre-loaded and ready to use with one audiobook per device—making them simple for you to use.
Where are they?
Playaways are located in the library behind the circulation desk. We have over 180 of them for students to enjoy. Students may browse through them any time.
Who & How can you check them out?
Students in 3rd, 4th and 5th grade may check out one at a time, simply because they are more expensive than a book. Parents may also check them out. The Playaway comes with the actual book to read along with as well as headphones. Students are responsible for returning everything when they are finished.
Students must have a permission form filled out if they would like to check them out throughout the school year. The permission form is at the bottom of the page.
The benefits of Playaways
The purpose behind ordering these books is to help students become better readers. When students are listening and following along with a reader, several things happen:
These are perfect for struggling readers to continue to grow as well as auditory learners.
