Knox County Public Library is pleased to introduce a new product called PlayAway View to make traveling and doctor's appointments both easy and educational.
In honor of its 125th Anniversary, the Library is now offering 125 portable, all-in-one video players, preloaded with hours of content 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.
For more information on the Library's new PlayAway Views, please visit www.knoxlib.org or call the Children's Room at (865) 215-8725.
