Launchpad learning tablets available at local library

in Uncategorized by

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.
