To place a hold on one of these titles, just click on it!

These are just a few of the Playaways available at Solvay Public Library. To search all of OCPL libraries for Playaways, use “playaway” as a keyword in your search.

Playaway is the simplest way to listen to an audiobook on the go. With the audio already contained within, and a battery to make it play, there’s nothing left to do but plug in earphones and enjoy.

As the first self-playing audiobook, Playaway brings pages to life at the push of a button. Audio content and simple, digital technology are now merged into an easy-to-use, self-contained player. And weighing only two ounces, Playaway is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and goes anywhere you do!

Solvay Public Library has started a new collection of Playaways available to check-out and are in the Hazard Room. We have adult and teen titles. You cannot place holds on our Playaways, but you can locate others in the OCPL system by typing “playaway” as a keyword.
