Elkhart Public Library receives AWE Early Literacy Computer grant

The Elkhart Public Library has received the grant of an AWE Early Literacy Computer.

Posted on March 19, 2013 at 1:00 a.m. | Updated on March 19, 2013 at 5:02 p.m.

The Literacy Computer is an all-inclusive educational computer designed for children ages 2-8. The computer is equipped with a touchscreen, a mouse, and a color-coded keyboard. There are over 60 educational games and activities preloaded onto the computer.

Games include Diego’s Safari Rescue, JumpStart Learning, Kid Pix 3D, Sesame Street, and many more!

Come to the library with your child to try it out today. Your child does not need a library card to use the computer. Just come to the Children’s Desk to ask for the day’s password. Your child will enjoy the intuitive interface and games with their favorite characters, all while learning valuable skills.

This project is supported by the Institute of Museums and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered by the Indiana State Library.

Parnell was convicted on numerous counts including conspiracy, wire fraud and obstruction of justice related to shipping tainted peanut butter to customers and faking results of lab tests intended to screen for salmonella.
