AWE Early Learning Stations!
Thanks to the generosity of the Pollard Memorial Library Foundation and a grant from the Digital Federal Credit Union, the Children's Department now has two AWE early stations. These learning stations are computers that are loaded with over 40 educational activities geared for toddlers, preschoolers, kindergarteners and early elementary school children. To learn more about the AWE stations stop by the Children's Department. We can't wait to see you and your children!
