This touchscreen, all-in-one computer provides computer skills, school readiness and early learning fun for young children.

The Oswego Public Library is now seeking funds for the second AWE Early Literacy Station to be purchased in 2015.

The Early Literacy Station is a bundled touchscreen computer system designed for children approximately 2-8 years old.

There are more than 70 educational programs that offer hundreds of activities.

The Early Literacy Station does not need to be connected to the Internet to operate.

It features a child-friendly interface and intuitive content menu for easy navigation.

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.

“The Early Literacy Station is a valuable resource for children and families in the Oswego area.  It has been in constant use since being installed and the children are exploring and finding new activities every day,” said Edward Elsner, librarian.
