Playaway Launchpads


Explore a world of learning with apps, videos, storybooks, games and more. 100% secure. No internet needed.

Launchpads are tablets that are pre-loaded with apps that revolve around a theme and do not require an internet connection to be used. The apps on the Launchpads include brain games, word games, language learning (all levels and multiple languages), math games, stories, miniseries, history, and business.

Listed below are all the Launchpads we currently have. For more information on specific Launchpads, click on the title. This will take you to our catalog where you can see if the device is available, which location it is currently at, and more detailed information on the games loaded on that device. 

To reserve a Launchpad, contact the library branch where you would like to pick up your Launchpad.
