Eagle Free Library has an Early Literacy Station, a comprehensive, educational solution loaded with over 70 educational software programs for ages 2–8. 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. It is designed to support school readiness and early education while making learning exciting and engaging. 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 and, even better…..IT IS FUN!!!! Bring in your young learners to try it out any time the library is open.
Using technology grant money very generously donated by Senator Gallivan, the Eagle Free Library will be purchasing an iPad loaded with early literacy and math skill software and games that can be signed out by an adult for one week at time with an OWWL library card. Check out our web page at eaglefreelibrary.org for further details as they become available.
