Playaway Launchpads

Playaway Launchpads, early educational devices, are preloaded with apps, games and books for children ages 3–10+. Launchpads are ad-free, do not require a Wi-Fi connection, and are 100% safe to use. 

Launchpads are a great tool to work with your little one's early literacy skills! Explore topics like Math, Language Arts, Critical Thinking, and Creativity in engaging and fun ways. To get the most out of this tool, remember to interact with your child while they use the tablet by asking questions and talking to them about the games they are playing.  Check out all the Launchpad early learning tablets available from the Library by browsing our catalog
