Hamden Miller Library now has Launchpads – learning tablets for kids –  available for borrowing in the Children’s Department. All you need to borrow one is your library card. Each Launchpad is pre-loaded with high-quality, ad-free learning apps and games geared for preschool through early elementary school age children.

Apps are grouped onto Launchpads by subject area, theme, grade level, and age. Each launch pad features a theme such as letters or numbers. They also feature popular characters, and themes from animals to pirates, fantasy, nature and more.

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

Parents will appreciate that Launchpads are 100% secure, ensuring that their children will not be exposed to inappropriate content, and that the informational console will let them monitor how time is spent on the tablet.

So stop by the Children’s Department and try one out!  For more information call us at 203-230-3770.
