Playaway Audio Books

​Dakota County Libraries offers a collection of bestselling current and classic titles on Playaway.

Half the size of a deck of cards, Playaway is the simplest way to listen to a book on the go—with no tapes, CDs or downloading to your own device. Using clearly marked buttons, Playaway gives listeners the ability to move back and forth within or between chapters and alter the speed of a narrator’s voice. It even has an automatic bookmark feature that remembers where you left off.

Playaway has a universal headphone jack that works with almost any type of headphone. It comes with the audio content already pre-loaded on it and a battery to make it play. Simply plug in earbuds or headphones (not included) and enjoy.

Playaways are available at all Dakota County Library branches. They may be checked out for three weeks and can be requested. Contact your local library for more information.
