Visit the Early Years Literacy Station
The new Early Literacy Station is loaded with fun and educational software titles for children ages 2 to 10. 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. We especially like the keyboard, where consonants are green, vowels are purple, numbers are red, punctuation is yellow and functions are blue.The station has a colorful keyboard, a tiny mouse and a cool touch screen. Visit the library with your parents and check it out!
