What is a Playaway Launchpad?
The first-ever secure, pre-loaded learning tablet created just for kids and circulation. 

Launchpad delivers ad-free learning apps grouped together by subject area, theme, grade level and age. The apps are pre-loaded and secured onto each tablet, providing hours of interactive learning and play.
