Make reading and learning fun with Launchpads!

Launchpads are pre-loaded tablets with high-quality, ad-free content just for kids! Give them the freedom to explore a world of learning with apps, videos, storybooks, games and more. They are easy to use and are 100% secure, there is no download time, and no need for Wi-Fi. Access to all content is simple as turning on each device, anytime, anywhere!  

Launchpads are free to borrow using your library card, and each Launchpad can be checked out for 3 weeks. Limit of 2 Launchpads and/or Wonderbooks per library card. You can place Launchpads on hold and choose to pick them up at any Barrie Public Library location.
