The Children's room has recently added 30 LAUNCHPADS to our collection!  They are self contained, handheld tablets, preloaded with educational and entertaining apps.  They are easy to use and ready to play!

Made by the makers of Playaway, they are appropriate for children age 3 up to Grade 5.  They may be borrowed for 7 days, one Launchpad per library card.  

Color copies of the Launchpad titles  can be found on the display bookcase in the children's room.  The apps are grouped by subject area and age.  Ten apps per tablet. 

No internet, so they are 100% secure with no risk of exposure to unintended content.  Each tablet is a new adventure!

                      Here is a list of our Launchpad titles

Our summer reading club was a big success with hundreds of registered readers who enjoyed a host of lively programs and events including storytimes, Craft Buddies, movies, live animal shows, science and museum programs, yoga and fitness classes, baby and toddler sing-alongs, a visit from Ronald McDonald, comedy jugglers, and of course, Summertales with Mr.B!  A performance by Music for Aardvarks and two Lasermania shows closed out the summer!  Thank you to everyone for your participation and support of the reading program.

  Enjoy the following pictures from our summer of fun!
