Our Playaway Collection Is Growing!
What is a Playaway? It’s a device half the size of a deck of cards that contains an entire audiobook. If you have a newer car with an auxiliary jack, all you need is an auxiliary cable to connect the Playaway to your car’s audio system. With the entire book at your fingertips, you don’t have to worry about feeding audiodiscs into your car’s CD player while you’re on the move. And, if you want, when you get where you’re going, you can exchange the aux cable for earbuds and listen to your book away from your car! Click here for a brief video of how Playaways work. ...
We will be adding new Playaways of bestselling books to our collection monthly, and we have just acquired new Playaways of several ever-popular book series – George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire (5 Playaways), Ken Follett’s The Century Trilogy (3), and Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series (8).
If you have any questions, be sure to speak to our reference librarians. They’ll be glad to help you get started with Playaways.
3M Cloud Library
WTPL has launched its own 3M Cloud Library of ebooks and downloadable audiobooks. Our Cloud Library is linked to the MAIN Cloud Library, so patrons will continue to have access to the MAIN content in addition to the Washington Township Library content. As other MAIN libraries launch their own Private Clouds, you will be able to access their content as well, provided their patrons don’t have holds on the material. ...
In order to take advantage of this new content, you need to log out of the MAIN 3M Cloud on your device (usually found under settings) and then log back in, choosing the Washington Township Library as your library (instead of MAIN).
At this time your holds and reading history from your MAIN account will not be visible when logging in through Washington Township Library. 3M is currently investigating if it will be possible to move history and holds to the new private cloud. You will have to log in through your MAIN account to see that information and finish up the titles you are currently reading or listening to. Please place future holds through the Washington Township private cloud! Be sure to contact the Library if you have any questions.
