LaunchPads

Submitted by ahumphrey on Tue, 05/01/2018 - 08:31

Thanks to the generosity of the Friends of the Montpelier Public Library, we are now offering Playaway Launchpads available for checking out of the library.  There is no need for internet or wi-fi as the Launchpads are pre-loaded to allow for hours of fun and learning.  Just check them out and start playing!!

Each Launchpad comes with a 7” HD touchscreen, an Android operating system, a protective case, power cord, AC adapter, durable protective bumper, universal audio jack, and pre-loaded apps.  The learning apps are categorized by grade level and content area in subjects such as science, math, critical thinking, and creativity.  They use themes such as princesses, animals, nature, dinosaurs and others.

In order to borrow the Launchpads, patrons must be 18 (eighteen) years of age or older, have a Montpelier Library card, and be in good standing (no fines).  Upon checkout, Library staff will confirm, in the presence of the borrowing patron, that all items are present in the kit. The patron must sign the Library's Launchpad Lending Agreement each time before borrowing a kit. Only one Launchpad kit may be borrowed on a patron's account at any one time.  The library will not accept holds on Launchpads.

The loan period for the Launchpad is seven (7) days with no grace period or renewals and a late fee of $1.00 per day.  Montpelier Public Library Launchpads are not available for transit to other libraries or for interlibrary loan and must be returned to the Montpelier Public Library ONLY!  Kits must be returned directly to a Library staff member at the Circulation Desk, who will verify, in the presence of the borrowing patron, that all components of the kit are accounted for before checking it in from the borrowing patron's account.

** AGAIN - ALL LAUNCHPADS MUST BE RETURNED INSIDE THE LIBRARY DIRECTLY TO A LIBRARY STAFF MEMBER AND NOT IN THE DROPBOX!**
