What is a Playaway Launchpad?
The first-ever secure, pre-loaded learning tablet created just for kids.

Launchpad delivers ad-free learning apps grouped together by subject area, theme, grade level and age. The apps are pre-loaded onto each tablet, providing hours of interactive learning and play.

Each library has been issued one Launchpad to start out with. Our library is starting out with Brain Blaster! Critical Thinking-Ages 5-7, Grades K-2.

If you want to give the Launchpad a try, ask for it at the Circulation desk. If it's already checked out, you can place a reserve on it.
