The Valdez Consortium Library is excited to announce that we have a brand new AWE Early Literacy Station; a complete, turnkey educational solution loaded with over 60 educational software titles for kids ages 2–8. Purchased with Alaska OWL funds. The Early Literacy Station™ offers children a safe, stand alone computer not connected to the Internet that is age-appropriate, engaging, and academically relevant for children. The ELS has a colorful keyboard and tiny mouse to promote easy learning and self discovery. The Early Literacy Station's educational software covers seven curricular areas: reading, math, science, social studies, writing, arts and music, and reference. Come by the library and try it out!
