Along with today’s official rollout of SuffolkWave, JJML is also making six Creative Zen Nano 512MB digital media players (see photo at right) available to library patrons. Any adult JJML patron, or any juvenile patron with a signed permission slip, may borrow one of these players so that he or she may listen to media downloaded from SuffolkWave while on the go.
The player can be used to listen to either digital audio books or music downloaded from SuffolkWave. Other digital audio books and music may also work on the player. The players are loaned without headsets; users must provide their own. Earbud type headsets are available for purchase from the library for $3.00. Once purchased, the headsets become the permanent property of the purchaser.
As this is written the players are being given barcodes, and entered into our online cataloging system. This may take a day or two to complete, so they may not be available immediately. More information is available at the John Jermain and SuffolkWave websites.
