Jane Morgan Memorial Library Adds Early Literacy Station™ to its Early Childhood Collection

Jane Morgan Memorial Library announces the acquisition of the Early Literacy Station (“ELS”), a computer workstation loaded with more than forty-five educational software titles for kids ages 2-10.  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.  The ELS is located in the back of the library, in"Activity Boulevard" and it has a colorful keyboard and tiny mouse to promote easy learning and discovery.

The Early Literacy Station’s educational software covers seven curricular areas: reading, math, science, social studies, writing, arts & music, and reference.  The system is designed to attract and educate toddlers through early elementary school ages.

Early Literacy Station educational software titles include:   

Millie's Math House JumpStart PreSchool Just Grandma and Me
Stellaluna Stationery Studio SpongeBob SquarePants Typing
Kidspiration Encarta Kids Encylcpedia Britannica Kids
Kid Pix Reader Rabbit Phonics ...plus 30 more top-rated titles

The Early Literacy Station has an imaginative interface that encourages exploration.  Many of the software programs contain disguised learning activities that expand the child’s experience through games and extension activities.

“The Early Literacy Station is an invaluable resource for our toddlers to 5th grade students,” says Jennifer Tallman, Librarian.  “The kids are having fun, and many times they don’t know they are learning!”

Early Literacy Stations are used in over 40% of the public libraries across the United States and Canada.  Elementary Schools, Head Start centers, After School Programs and Childcare facilities are adding the Early Literacy Station to their curriculum.  For more information about the Early Literacy Station English or Bilingual Spanish editions, or to learn about the AWE’s ELF Child-safe Browser, visit AWE, Inc. at http://www.awe-net.com.
