Written by Sarah McIntyre —
The Early Literacy Station is for the youngest readers to enjoy with thousands of educational games and programs which span all areas of learning including science, music, art, history, and of course reading.
The Afterschool Edge Station is geared toward elementary school aged readers who like to explore those same activities and both stations allow users to interact and read-along with stories. These are not connected to the internet, allowing for safe computer use, but they are touch screen for the smallest, curious hands.
As part of the Golden 1 grant, a new collection of books will be purchased that are written for struggling or reluctant readers. These books will encourage readers to grow a love for reading and work toward their reading level goals at the same time. This collection will be available at the North Fork Library soon.
