Playaway Launchpads – great for Winter Break!
Playaway Launchpads, which we started offering to young patrons in July 2015, are kids-only learning tablets that circulate just like a book or movie. The tablets are pre-loaded with educational apps appropriate for your young child.
These tablets come in fun, bright orange packaging, a charging cord (with both USB and AC adapters), and a durable case, perfect for little hands. There are currently over 25 tablets available, each pre-loaded with high-quality, interactive learning apps geared towards a particular subject area, including math, science, and language arts, and each with a different theme, such as pizza, colors, and monkeys. The tablets are also divided by age group: 3 – 5, 5 – 7, 8 – 10, and 10+ years. They are easy to use and come ready to play with award-winning apps.
Most importantly, these devices are 100% secure and do not have Internet connectivity. Patrons do not have to install parental controls or worry about their children being exposed to unintended or inappropriate content.
To reserve a Playaway Launchpad, simply click here. Choose a tablet at the appropriate age level and with a theme that your child will enjoy. Once requested, you may pick it up in the Circulation Desk.
