PLAYAWAYS

The GVMS Library owns nearly 100 play-aways, which are recorded novels. They are packaged in self-contained units that are accessed with headphones and take AAA batteries.

Play-Aways are available to any student who thinks it will help them with their reading. They may be borrowed by students whose parents have signed the attached permission slip (click here).

In order to see what playaways we have available in the library, please go to the Destiny Catalog and simply type in "playaway" and you will see what is available. You may also come by the library to have a look.

Happy Listening!
