Millington Lions Donate an Early Literacy Computer to the Library

 

AWE Early Literacy Station™

Early Literacy Station™

T
he Millington Lions Club has donated an AWE Early Literacy Station™ to the Millington Arbela District Library. The Early Literacy Station (ELS) is a dynamic, turnkey all-in-one dig­i­tal learn­ing solu­tion for chil­dren ages 2–8. It requires no Internet con­nec­tion, so it is safe and secure.

The lat­est ver­sion fea­tures more than 60 edu­ca­tional soft­ware pro­grams that have been designed to teach skills in math, read­ing, logic and other areas. The edu­ca­tional titles are dis­played using engag­ing graph­ics and intu­itive menus. The com­puter is equipped with a touch screen for lit­tle hands that can­not use a mouse.

The Millington Arbela District Library Board of Trustees and library staff is very excited about this dona­tion. We are look­ing for­ward to the chil­dren of Millington enjoying the process of learn­ing new skills and hav­ing fun at the same time.
