Peters Township Public Library will host a “Playaway Day” on Thursday, July 19 to feature their Playaway and Playaway View collections from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the main lobby.
Donna Destefano, Account Manager Eastern Region at Findaway World, will be available to demo the devices and help patrons with any questions. Those attending will receive free giveaways to use with the Playaways including ear buds and audio cables to use in their car. Patrons will also be eligible to win a basket filled with items to use along with Playaway products.
Peters Township Public Library is one of nine libraries in the country and the only one in Pennsylvania selected as a beta testing site for the new Playaway View™ from Findaway World. There are 30 Playaway Views, the first portable all-in-one video player, available for adult patrons to checkout, each preloaded with a different video selection. The Children’s Department has over 60 Playaway Views available for the younger patrons.
As the library is participating in a trial program for this new product, patrons who check out a Playaway View will be asked to complete a short online survey to give feedback about the device. Hard copies of the survey will also be available at the library. Patrons who participate in this special beta testing and complete the survey will be eligible to win a $100 Visa gift card.
