Thanks to a Jefferson County Library Cooperative grant, we recently received new Launchpads. They are available with "brain games", ACT test preparation, English as a Second Language, and high school math. Launchpads are great way for adults to improve memory and work the brain's muscles, for teens preparing for ACT or anyone wanting a math challenge. Check one out at the circulation desk.
