Special Collections


The MidPointe Library System offers so much more than books! From science kits and tablets to make learning fun, to board games to enjoy with your family and friends, these special collection items are available free with your MidPointe Library System card!

Playaway Launchpads

LaunchPad

The kids only learning tablet that both kids and adults will love.

Every Playaway Launchpad is pre-­‐loaded with high-­‐quality, ad-­‐free learning apps and games, providing hours of interactive learning and play.

Apps are grouped onto Launchpads by subject area, theme, grade level, and age. Featuring popular characters and brands, apps content spans subject areas from math and science to critical thinking and creativity, and theme from animals to princesses, fantasy, nature and more.

Kids will love the Launchpad experience, which lets them design a personal avatar before game play and choose an app adventure they’re most interested in.

Adults will love that Launchpads are 100% secure, ensuring that will not be exposed to unintended content, and that the informational console will let them monitor how time is spent on the tablet.

Lauchpads are available for a 7 day checkout.
