NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Metro libraries celebrated a major purchase on Tuesday – more than 800 take home tablets for children.

The devices can be checked out like books at Metro Public Libraries. All of the tablets are pre-loaded with educational apps.

“We purchased these with a Dollar General Literacy Foundation grant,” explained Emily Waltenbaugh said. “We bought a few over the summer and they were a huge hit, so we decided to buy 700 more.”

The tablets can be checked out for two weeks at a time with a Metro library card.

The age range is for children 3 to 5 years old and 6 to 7 years old.
