Playaway Collection


Thanks to our generous Friends of the Milwaukee Public Library, the neighborhood and Central libraries will each receive new digital audio book collections. The library submitted a single-grant request to the Friends for $10,000 to purchase new “Playaway” audio books. Playaways are the digital content of an entire book pre-loaded into a pocket-size player. There is no need to load CD’s or cassette tapes; you just press “play” and begin listening. Very simple to operate and light to carry, the library is excited to be able to offer this type of media to its patrons. These will hit the shelves in early 2008.
