Check out PlayAway View™ at the Library
KNOXVILLE -- Knox County Public Library is offering a new product to check out called PlayAway View™. This smart hand held makes traveling and doctor's appointments both easy and educational.
There are 125 portable, all-in-one video players, preloaded with hours of content available for check out. These educational and entertaining videos for children span from Sesame Street and Elmo to biographies of American presidents and National Geographic wildlife documentaries. The check out period for each PlayAway View is one week and available on adult library cards only. Overdue fines are $1 per day with a maximum cap of $10.
The collection is housed at Lawson McGhee Library downtown, but all titles can be transferred and checked out from any library location. Each player includes hours of pre-loaded content requiring no internet access or downloaded material. They have headphone jacks and speakers built in.
"We are very excited to be able to offer these portable video players for families," commented Myretta Black, Library Director. "The titles available are wonderful. Children can be engaged in learning no matter where they are. We believe this product will be very popular for travelers and folks in waiting rooms alike."
