Launchpads at the Library! PDF Print E-mail

LaunchpadA new tech tool, Playaway Launchpad, has come to the Children’s Department of the Monmouth County Library System. Available in all 13 library branches, these child-friendly tablets are pre-loaded with ten high-quality, ad-free learning apps grouped by age and grade level. Each simple-to-use bright orange tablet has a 7” high-definition touch screen and is durable enough to withstand heavy use by little hands. Each has a unique theme, which may include princesses, animals, dinosaurs, transportation, art, and more, in subject areas that help build English language arts, math, and science skills. Launchpads are targeted for either ages 3-5 or 5-7 and can be borrowed with a Monmouth County Library card or valid driver’s license for in-library use. Headphones accompany each tablet and ensure a quiet environment in which to explore and create. Visit your local branch today to experience one of the library’s latest fun learning tools!
