We are pleased to offer a resource called Playaways.  A Playaway is a digital audiobook that is preloaded on an MP3 device (approx. 2” x 3.5” in size) that only contains that book.  Each device has a lanyard and a universal earphones jack that fits most headsets, earbuds, or computer speakers so the person can listen to a book, much like a book on tape. We have paired each Playaway with a print copy of the book. Many Playaways are the first book in a series. We have Playaways for many popular fiction books as well as many class novels read in English classes. 
    In order to check out a Playaway, students must have a Playaway Agreement Form on file. If you completed one in middle school, it can still apply.
