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
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.

Laptops
The MidPointe Library System offers laptop computers for use by patrons within the library. These wireless laptops are equipped with Microsoft Office applications along with internet capabilities.

These laptops are available at MidPointe Library Monroe and Trenton locations. Checkout periods are up to three hours. Please see the MidPointe Public Policy Manual for additional laptop checkout details.
