NEWS FLASH! Ligonier Valley Library has Playaways!

We just added 32 new Playaway titles to our collection!

For those who might be unfamiliar with Playaways, they are quite simply the easiest way to listen to an audiobook while on the go. Playaways work like an MP3 player or IPod, except that you don't have to download the content. You just plug in your earphones to the player and enjoy.

Some of the titles you will find at the library, include:
  • Burn by Nevada Barr
  • Infamous by Suzanne Brockmann
  • Whiplash by Cathering Coulter
  • The Liar's Lullaby by Meg Gardiner
  • Ice Cold by Tess Gerritsen
  • As Husbands Go by Susan Isaacs
  • Robert Ludlum's the Bourne objective by Eric Van Lustbader
  • Devil Amongst the Lawyers by Sharyn McCrumb
  • Twilight by Stephanie Meyer (also New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn)
  • Exclusive by Fern Michaels
  • Private by James Patterson & Maxine Paetro
  • In Harm's Way by Ridley Pearson
  • Rules of Betrayal by Christopher Reich
  • The Year of the Fog by Michelle Richmond
  • The Search by Nora Roberts
  • Flashforward by Robert J. Sawyer
  • The Rembrandt Affair by Daniel Silva
  • Family Ties by Danielle Steel

The Playaways are located just before the start of the non-fiction Audiobooks on CD.

In addition to the 30+ Playaways that we own, there are many more in the system from other libraries. Let us know if you need help requesting a title.

Happy Listening!

Headphones are not provided with the devices. You can either use your own or purchase a set at the main circulation desk at the Ligonier Valley Library.
