Early Literacy Stations (ELS)
Come check out the Library’s ELS which provides over 55 bilingual English and Spanish educational games for kids ages 2 - 8. Each station offers a child a safe, standalone computer not connected to the Internet that is age-appropriate, engaging, and academically relevant for children. The ELS has a large monitor with touchscreen capability plus a colorful keyboard and tiny mouse to promote easy learning and self-discovery. The ELS software covers seven curricular areas: reading, math, science, social studies, writing, arts and music, and reference. We are pleased to announce that we will be getting four new ELS in the fall!
