New Playaways - Digital Audio Books to Go!

GHL has added 19 more titles to our Playaway collection.  That brings us to a total of 352 audio books, conveniently placed on deck of cards-sized audio players that you can use with earbuds or in your car or wherever you want to listen to a great book.

The new titles include several New York Times bestselling titles, such as:

  • Wonder, R. J. Palacio
  • The Casual Vacancy, J. K. Rowling
  • Hallucinations, Olive Sacks
  • Bring Up the Bodies, Hilary Mantel

For a list of the whole 19 (and the other 333), see this search in the MU catalog, which lists the titles in the order we've added them (the newest are listed first).

Oh, and if you have questions about Playaways in general, let us know, or take a look at this page on the Playaway site.

Tweet Your Dream

In the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the short messages of Twitter, the library invites you to Tweet your Dream.  Travel, school, family, work, there is no end to what your dream may cover. We invite everyone, students, faculty and staff, to write out their dreams in 140 characters and email them to us at

All participants who submit a dream will be entered in a drawing to win a gift, so don’t forget to include your name and email address with your dream. In February we plan to display submitted dreams in the library. Entries should be submitted by January 31st to be entered in the drawing.

Happy dreaming!
