AWE Work Stations Arrive

The Beaver City Public Library is excited to announce the arrival of our two new AWE work stations.  We were able to purchase the new stations through funding from a library improvement grant offered by the Nebraska Library Commission.  We have an early literacy station and an after school edge station.  Each station has a brightly colored keyboard, headsets, and a touch screen computer loaded with over 4000 educational activities for children to use.  These stations are not connected to the internet so there is no risk of young children accidentally viewing inappropriate or harmful content.  The library staff and board are happy to offer these stations as a fun opportunity for children to learn educationally through the use of technology.  Our youngest patrons are enjoying being able to take part in playing on the computers like the older children.

Thank You Nebraska Library Commission for awarding our library grant money!!!
