They're here! They're here!

Back in November, we introduced our public library patrons to a new format: Playaways. These self-contained audiobooks have proven hugely popular, with each title having been listened to about a half-dozen times, and until recently 75% of the collection was checked out at any one time.
The true measure of their popularity, however, has been that people have started asking when we're getting more titles. Well, ask and ye shall receive. We've just added 4 new titles to our Playaway shelves, and we have another 7 waiting to be cataloged. The new Playaways on the shelf include:
  • Extreme Measures by Vince Flynn
  • Izzy & Lenore by Jon Katz
  • Just After Sunset by Stephen King
  • A Most Wanted Man by John le CarrĂ©
We plan on continuing the growth of this red-hot collection, and we will be adding 12 new titles every quarter...so keep scanning the shelves. And if you would like to see a complete list of the Playaways we have available, just search our online catalog. Type the word "Playaway" in the search box, and hit the Title button. You'll get the full list of all 57 titles, which ones are currently on the shelf, and which ones you can place a hold on. Thanks for listening!
