Playaways digital audiobooks

It’s light and compact – smaller than a pack of cards – so you can fit a whole book in your pocket.

Playaways are a ready to listen digital audiobook already loaded with your favourite fiction, available from Emersons Green, Thornbury, Staple Hill and Yate libraries for a three week loan, free of charge. A Playaway doesn’t require a separate player so there’s no need for CDs, cassettes or downloads.

It has digital quality sound and up to 80 hours of playing time. Just plug-in your headphones press ‘play’ and listen straight away. No technical knowledge is needed – Playaway’s user-friendly features mean you can bookmark your favourite points and control the speed of the narrator’s voice. It even remembers your place when it’s turned off.

If you would like to find out what novels we have as Playaways and would like to reserve one, just search the library catalogue and enter Playaways under Keyword Search and then reserve one of your choice and collect it from your local library.

Now you can listen wherever you go.
