Our library now has Playaway Launchpads for use in the library and to check out.
Launchpads are learning tablets containing preloaded interactive educational apps. They are designed to be child-friendly with durable cases and no internet access.
The library has started the collection with 11 tablets for preschool and elementary aged children. Each individual tablet contains apps focusing on a specific theme such as literacy, STEAM, or critical thinking.
Launchpads are located on the shelf behind the reference desk, facing the Books on CD for adults. You can find them in our catalog here.
Launchpads check out for 3 weeks and are NOT renewable.
This collection was funded by a generous donation in memory of Marilyn Alexander. Mrs. Alexander was the president of the Friends of Milan Public Library for many years, and a strong personal supporter of the library. She was especially invested in supporting youth literacy through the Summer Reading Program, Books for Babies, and more. The library is privileged to honor her memory with these tablets which will support literacy and technology skills among children in our community
