Playaway Views are self-contained, durable video players for kids. They come preloaded with content and are easy for kids to operate. Titles include Sesame Street, PBS’ Super Why!, Arthur, Caillou, and more.
“They’re amazing, and so sturdy,” said Jamie Bayne, BCPL information services supervisor and the mother of a toddler. “My son is almost 2, and he can operate it without any issues. It’s great for in the car, at the grocery story, or on the night the power went out and he wanted to see Elmo!”
The devices will be available at all three BCPL branches (Main, Kyova and Catlettsburg) beginning Wednesday, May 22.
They can be checked out for seven days, with no renewal. The fine for a late return is $1 per day.
BCPL is adding 100 of these devices to the collection. Patrons can place a hold using the catalog at www.thebookplace.org. Just search using “Playaway View” as the key word.
