ROCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — A library in New Hampshire is rolling out what it describes as a kid-friendly computer.
The director of the Rochester library, Brian Sylvester, said that it has added an AWE Learning station so that youngsters can improve their reading skills. The Earl Literacy Station designed for children between the ages of 2 and 8 and features more than 4,000 learning activities. The system allows children to beef up their math, science, nature, social studies, geography, reading, art and music skills.
The library also offers AWE Learning’s Afterschool Edge programming, which is geared to children ages 6-12 and offers homework help. AWE Learning is a maker of educational computer games and equipment for children.
A gift from the Friends of the Rochester Library allowed for the purchase of the computer.
“We’re so grateful to the Friends for this generous gift, which really strengthens our digital lineup and helps us cater even more to our youngest patrons,” Sylvester said in a statement.
