The Garden City Public Library is excited to announce the addition of Playaway Launchpads to the children’s collection. Playaway Launchpads are pre-loaded learning tablets with high-quality, ad-free learning apps to provide themed, grade-leveled, subject-based learning. Each Launchpad comes with a 7” HD Touchscreen, an Android operating system, a protective case, and over 10 pre-loaded apps. The tablets are geared to a wide range of children of different ages, from preschool up through middle school. Subjects include language arts, math, science, and more.

The Launchpads are new, innovative, educational tools to provide interactive learning and literacy for the children of Garden City. With the increased use of computers and technology in everyday life, the Launchpads will offer children an opportunity to learn vital technology skills while having fun.

The 13 Playaway Launchpads are now circulating, but they may be taken out only by Garden City adult cardholders. They circulate for seven days and are not holdable, but can be renewed once. There is a limit of one Launchpad per household that can be checked out at a time. Late fees are $2.00 per day up to $25.00, and the replacement fee is $99.00.


School Supply Drive for Homeless

The Garden City Public Library is hosting a school-supply drive for the homeless now through August 10. The Library needs your help to collect new school supplies for homeless children on Long Island. The "Supply Our Students Drive" is sponsored by the Long Island Coalition for the Homeless (LICH). Each year, they pack thousands of backpacks with the school supplies they collect through this drive. The backpacks are distributed through their network of homeless shelters in late August. Last summer, they distributed over 4,000 back packs to kids in need on Long Island.

With your help, we can help LICH distribute more backpacks this year than ever before. Every child deserves to start their school year with the tools they need to succeed. A collection box is stationed in the vestibule of the Library now through August 10.

The Long Island Coalition for the Homeless is a 501c3, non-profit organization based in Amityville, NY. Their mission is to eliminate homelessness on Long Island and improve the lives of Long Islanders who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
