New Computer for Children

AWE image    Thanks to the generosity of Mary Ellen Nestor Smith and family we are pleased to announce the acquisition of the AWE Early Literacy Station™ in our new Technology Center.

AWE Early Literacy Station™ (ELS) is a comprehensive, turnkey educational solution loaded with over 70 educational software programs for kids ages 2–8. The Early Literacy Station™ offers children a safe, standalone computer not connected to the Internet that is age-appropriate, engaging, and academically relevant for children. It is designed to support school readiness and early education while making learning exciting and engaging.

The early learning applications on the Early Literacy Station span every curriculum area: reading, language arts, math, science, STEM, social studies, writing, graphic arts, typing, music, and more. The content is correlated to Common Core standards. It also features a host of administrative controls including timed sessions and usage tracking.

The Early Literacy Station has an imaginative interface that encourages exploration by readers and pre-readers alike. Since it is a self-contained computer, the need for adult intervention and technical support is greatly minimized.
AWE’s Early Literacy Station, the company’s flagship product, is found in over 40% of the public libraries across the United States as well as in many communities in Canada and abroad.  The computer will be available during our regular hours.  Sign up is not required but we may limit sessions as demand increases.  Come on in and check out this great new addition.
