If you like to listen to audiobooks, then listen carefully to this week’s Port Pick! New to the world of audiobooks is the Playaway format. At the Port Library if you want to listen to an audiobook we offer them on CD or directly as a digital download to your device. However, a Playaway is the audiobook in digital format, all on its own dedicated player. The player is just a little larger than a full size box of tic tac breath mints, and is powered by 1 AAA battery. You plug your own earphones in, or if your vehicle has an audiojack you can plug it right in to your car’s stereo system. The player is also small enough to tuck into any pocket and can easily be taken jogging or worn while doing other work. The Port Library’s collection is small right now, although we do have a small rotating collection and can request other titles for you on interlibrary loan.
For now the library’s permanent collection consists of just four titles: Touch & Go by Lisa Gardner, Son by Lois Lowry, Confessions of a Murder Suspect by James Patterson, and Private Berlin, also by James Patterson. The Playaways will circulate for 2 weeks at a time. If you have questions about this audiobook format, digital downloads, or even our CD collections, please call, email, or stop by!
You can get the audiobooks reviewed here and more great titles to watch, read, listen to, or play with at the Port Library at 1718 N. Hersey in Beloit. This is director Rachel Malay, saying “Thanks for checking us out!”
