Waynesboro Public Library is excited to announce the arrival of Playaway View™ , the first portable all-in-one video player.

The pre-loaded video player offers patrons access to award-winning programs from top children’s content providers such as PBS KIDS, National Geographic, Sesame Street and TumbleBooks, among others. With Playaway View, libraries can provide portable educational and entertaining programming that was designed with libraries and kids in mind.

“Playaway View’s simple functionality, full LCD viewing screen, and expansive content selection make it a great addition to the Waynesboro Public Library,” said Bethany Rose, Youth Services Librarian. “Our patrons can enjoy highly acclaimed content in the palm of their hands.”

Each View is preloaded with multiple videos to entertain even the youngest patrons for hours at a time. A variety of popular television episodes, animated picture books, and curriculum-based learning is offered for pre-kindergarten through high school. The library’s collection currently includes The Human Body, Best of Sesame Street, Exploring Space, Hooray for Reading!, How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight?, The Napping House, Something Old Something New, Stories About Howard, Stories About Ralph S. Mouse, and Underwater Creatures.

Weighing only 5.4 ounces, Playaway View is a convenient and low-maintenance. The device comes with a 3.5″ full color LCD screen with a shatter-resistant acrylic screen cover. The built-in speaker makes sharing up to six hours of content easy while the headphone jack outlet offers a library/parent-friendly quiet option.
