Where has the summer gone? I feel like it has flown by, and I was starting to get a little down about that, but rather than think, “Oh, my gosh, it’s almost August!”,  I decided to take a glass-half-full approach and tell myself, “There are still six weeks until Labor Day!” Plenty of time to enjoy all that summer has to offer. Six weeks of summer means plenty of time to still sign up for Summer Reading at the library, earn fun prizes, and become eligible for raffle drawings for other terrific prizes, including tablets, book bundles, and movie passes.

Ready, Set, Launchpad!

There is a new way for kids to learn at home and at the library! Playaway Launchpads are kid-friendly tablets preloaded with educational (and ad-free) apps, books, and games, available for ages 3-5 and 5-7 for two-week checkout periods. The apps enhance skills in math, science, language learning, English language arts, critical thinking, and creativity. Launchpads are 100% safe and secure. They do not connect to wifi or request personal information. There is even a screen for an adult to check up on what a child has been playing and see which skills have been tested. Kids can score Discovery Points in each activity. With their points, they can "purchase" accessories for their own avatars.
