NEW TECH ALERT: Kindle Fire Kids Edition

We are proud to announce a new inside-the-library gaming option for the little ones! Ever since the library renovation, we have been without the old children’s game computers. Using a computer mouse requires a lot of hand-eye coordination that young children may or may not have developed yet. Now, we have two Kindle Fire Kids Editions available for 2-hour checkout periods inside the library.┬áThese tablets are locked in the child profile so children will not be able to access the adult profile. Parental controls are in full effect in every sense — kids will not be able to access weird websites!

How it works:
1.) Use your library card to check out a Kindle Fire from the youth services desk
2.) Do stuff while your child plays on the tablet in the youth department
3.) Return to the youth services desk after 2 hours

Would you rather check out a tablet to take home? Check out our new Playaway Launchpad collection. Each Launchpad tablet comes with pre-loaded, educational games and you can check them out for three weeks. They have been real popular ever since we rolled them out in November!
