We are excited to announce that we now offer Playaway Launchpads, secure, pre-loaded learning tablets designed for children. The Launchpads come pre-loaded with 10 or more high-quality learning apps that your kids are sure to love.
Several branches have Launchpads available for three-week checkout to KDL cardholders: Alpine Township, Byron Township, Cascade Township, East Grand Rapids, Gaines Township, Grandville, Kentwood (Richard L. Root), Plainfield Township and Wyoming.
Some branches have a Launchpad available for use inside the library: Alpine Township, Byron Township, Cascade Township, Kentwood (Richard L. Root), Nelson Township/Sand Lake, Spencer Township, Walker and Wyoming.
“I think these are a great alternative to the circulating iPads we offer for adults,” said Tammy Schneider, Collection Development Librarian. “They are made especially for kids, and have no Internet access, so parents can be sure their child isn’t going to accidentally get to a website that’s not appropriate.”
