New AWE Literacy Station at the library for children.

The AJM Library is happy to announce that we now have an AWE Learning Station. This AWE Station is geared for children aged 2 to 8 with over 70 pre-loaded programs (no internet connection for safety purposes) and 4,000 activities that promote literacy and school readiness. These programs follow the STEM/STREAM learning goals with activities in numbers/math, letters/reading including sight words, phonics and writing, science, social studies/geography, art and music. It includes a color coded keyboard to help children locate letters, numbers, symbols and command keys, as well as a mouse and touch screen, Before we had installed it one hour, a four year old came in with his mother and headed directly to it. This AWE Station sits in the children's section and we hope both children and parents will enjoy using this very child friendly and happy way to learn early and keep ahead in the early grades. Come take a look! (Please sign up at the front desk for use.)
