Chester, PA (PRWEB) September 12, 2013

AWE announced today that El Paso Public Library has added 16 of AWE’s AfterSchool Edge™ educational computer stations to its 13-branch library system.

The AfterSchool Edge™ is a completely bundled all-in-one computer that features relevant educational software content for elementary-age children (approximately 6-12 years old). Each AfterSchool Edge computer contains over 60 pre-loaded educational software programs and hundreds of activities. This specially designed computer offers young students a safe, standalone device that does not require an Internet connection to operate. The content spans all curriculum areas: reading, math, science, history, writing, typing, arts and music, and reference.

The AfterSchool Edge also features a host of administrative functions including timed sessions and usage tracking.

“These AWE computers will be an invaluable resource for the children in our community. Children will be able to use them as homework aids or simply as a vast learning resource they can explore on their own,” says Dionne Mack, Director of the El Paso Public Library.

“Plus, we see the AWE computers playing a key role in keeping kids engaged with learning during school breaks and summer vacation,” Ms. Mack adds.

AWE has been providing technology solutions to public libraries for over a decade. Its flagship product, the Early Literacy Station, is found in over 35% of public library systems across the United States and into Canada.
