They circulate for 7 days, may not be renewed, and must be returned to a staff member at the Circulation Desk (not in our book drop or at another library).

VOX (Voice) Books are the world's first audio books that live in print books. The permanently attached VOX Reader transforms an ordinary print book into an all-in-one read-along. There's no need for computers, tablets, or CDs. Children simply push a button to listen and read. Like a Playaway device, there are buttons to push to turn the device on, play, skip forwards or backwards a track, adjust the volume, etc. There is also an earphone jack for private listening. All books will be charged prior to checkout. Headphones are not included.
