ROCHESTER — Library Director Brian Sylvester is pleased to announce that the Rochester Public Library has added a kid-friendly computer to its offerings.
Thanks to a gift from the Friends of the Rochester Library, the library has added an AWE Learning station that kids can use to sharpen their reading skills digitally from a young age.
AWE Learning is a maker of educational computer games and equipment for children. The Early Literacy Station is designed for library-goers between the ages of 2-8 and features more than 4,000 learning activities. Kids can use the system to learn more about math, science, nature, social studies, geography, reading, art and music.
The library also offers AWE Learning’s Afterschool Edge programming, which is meant for students ages 6-12 that offers enrichment, intervention, homework help and skill reinforcement.
“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.
