Playaways: Books for Your Ears!

We have purchased a growing number of Playaways for the teen and J sections this year, but you may not even know what they are! Playaways are audio books that come pre-loaded on mp3 players. You just plug in your headphones and go! They are way more portable than books on tape or CD. Some libraries charge to borrow Playaways, but the Upper Darby Libraries do not. You can borrow them for three weeks and renew them twice, just like books.

Here are the Playaways that we own in the teen section:
  • The Six Rules of Maybe by Deb Caletti
  • Al Capone Does My Shirts by Gennifer Choldenko
  • Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
  • The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
  • Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins (NEW!)
  • The City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau (NEW!)
  • Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech
  • Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
  • An Abundance of Katherines by John Green (NEW!)
  • The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton
  • The Giver by Lois Lowry
  • Dunk by David Lubar
  • Sleeping Freshmen Never Lie by David Lubar
  • Bloody Jack by L. A. Meyer (NEW!)
  • Flocabulary: The Hip-Hop Approach to SAT-Level Vocabulary Building by Blake Harrison
