New Computers!

AWE Computer PosterThe Linton Public Library has been awarded a new state-of-the-art computer system designed specifically for our early learners.

The Early Literacy Stations are pre-loaded with more than 37 top-rated educational games and a colorful computer system designed especially for kids. This new opportunity at the library offers a way children can sharpen their thinking skills while still having a good time.

With color-coded keys, engaging graphics, a child-size mouse, and a variety of interactive tools, the Early Literacy Station makes learning fun and exciting. Simply by moving the mouse cursor over an icon, children can see and hear what programs are available. Designed with kids in mind, there is little or no adult intervention required. The new early literacy computers are not connected to the internet, so parents can rest assured that only age appropriate material will be displayed.

Please feel free to call Phyllis or Becky at the Linton Public Library with any questions or for more information.
