Got headphones? Check out the newest audio books @ JPL!
Not an MP3 or CD player, and not software, Playaway® is the self-contained audio book. It's about the size of a credit card so Playaway® is a perfect fit for your pocket. Just plug in your heaphones and go!
You can view the current collection in the “Playaway” in the Library’s online catalog.

Each month, we meet to talk about our favorite manga or watch our favorite anime!
