The Beaufort County Library is now offering 30 new educational tablets for young library customers to borrow at its Beaufort Branch Library as part of a pilot project funded by the Public Library Foundation of Beaufort County. The fun, colorful new Playaway “Launchpads” are secure learning tablets designed for children. They are pre-loaded with high-quality educational apps selected by experienced professionals and are 100% secure – preventing exposure to unintended content.
“These tablets are another cost-effective way to expand educational library services to our customers,” said Library Director Ray McBride. The tablets have arrived at the Children’s Room of the Beaufort Branch. A library card is required to check out the device. Some devices are available for use in the library, and most are available for week-long checkouts. If the pilot project is successful, the Library plans to expand circulation of the devices to all branches.
