AWE Early Literacy Stations @ the library

We have an AWE computer station at the library. It is a stand alone station that is not connected to the Internet and has many, many computer games on it that are reflective of children's literature. One example is Dr. Seuss' Green Eggs & Ham. The computer programs range in ability from preschool to 5th grade. This wonderful computer was donated by the Seymour Optimist Club and the desk that it sits on was donated by Home of the Hamburger.
