AWE has announced that the Cleveland Public Library has added 54 of AWE’s Early Literacy Station™ computers across its 27 branches.

The Early Literacy Station is an all-in-one touchscreen computer system designed for children approximately 2-8 years old. It features over 60 pre-loaded educational software programs that include thousands of activities. It enables children to learn and explore at their own pace.

The Early Literacy Station offers young learners a safe, stand-alone computer resource that does not require an Internet connection to operate. The software content spans all curriculum areas (reading, language arts, math, science, STEM, social studies, writing, graphic arts, typing, music, and more) and is correlated to Common Core standards. It also features a host of administrative features including timed sessions and usage tracking.

“At Cleveland Public Library we are committed to providing new ways to adapt to the needs of the people we serve,” said library director, Felton Thomas, Jr. “The Early Literacy Stations meet the needs of safety, technology, and education that are so important to our community.”

As AWE’s flagship product, the Early Literacy Station is found in 40% of public library systems. The Early Literacy Station is available in English, Bilingual Spanish, and Bilingual French.
