Playaway Launchpads


The library is now offering Playaway "Launchpad" tablets for children to play with, and for Crestwood Library cardholders to check out! Launchpads are smart tablets pre-loaded with age-appropriate, ad-free apps that are both educational and entertaining. Best of all, no connectivity or downloading is required for use.

The apps are grouped on tablets by subject area, theme, grade level, and age, making it easy for parents and their children to choose a tablet that most appeals to them. Each Lanchpad is 100% secure (children cannot go out onto the Internet), providing hours of interactive learning and play without the risk of exposure to unintended content. Subject offerings include math, science, critical thinking skills, and creative play, using such themes as animals, fantasy, nature, and more. Children can customize their experiences by creating their own personal avatar. Parents and teachers can access an informational console that gives feedback about time spent with the tablet. 

Stop by the library to check one out today! *

*At this time, the Playaway Launchpads are only available to valid Crestwood Library cardholders for a 7 day period with no renewals. Tablets must be checked out with an adult card. One tablet per family at a time.
