Summer Adventure 2015: Check out a Playaway or Audiobook

ListenEarn points for the Summer Adventure by checking out a Playaway or Audiobook.

For those who do not know, Playaways are preloaded music devices with your audiobook on it all ready to go. You can take it with you anywhere so there’s no worry about needing a CD player! You just plug your headphones in and are ready to be sucked into a whole new world.

I really like listening to audiobooks especially when the narrator is able to draw you into the story and bring the characters to life.  Here are a few recommendations:

Book Thief         Harry Potter      Wonder

The Book Thief                     Harry Potter Series            Wonder
Read by Allan Corduner     Read by Jim Dale              Read by Diana Steele
YA CD ZUSAK                       YA CD ROWLING            PLAYAWAY JF PALACIO

Use our online catalog to find your own Playaways or Audiobooks on CD.  You can narrow your search to Fountaindale Public Library items and by Target Audience (i.e. Juvenile or Adolescent) using the menu on the left-hand side of the screen. 

We also have Playaway Kits that include the book so you can read-along as you listen! To see only our kits in the search results, click on the box marked “Kit” on the left-hand side under Type of Material.
