Beginning Monday February 13th, patrons of the Bay Springs Municipal Library will have the opportunity to check out a new library item: a Playaway Launchpad Learning Tablet!

Each tablet is pre-loaded with high-quality learning apps for hours of fun, and is 100% secure, so you don't have to worry about your child viewing unintended content. They are easy to use, and ready to play right out of the box! There are eight different tablets for children ranging in age from 3 to 10+.
