The Warren Public Library is pleased to announce that Busch Branch Library now has an AWE Early Literacy Station, an all-in-one computer station that is preloaded with more than 75 educational software titles.

The AWE Early Literacy Station’s preloaded software has an early literacy focus. The interactive games explore skills for reading as well as for STEAM topics—science, technology, engineering, art, and math. The station is available for children to use while the library is open. It does not require a library card, and it cannot access the internet.

Parents and Caregivers: If your child uses the AWE Early Literacy Station at Busch Branch Library, please consider completing an optional questionnaire. Your answers will help plan future programming.

Funding is provided in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services through the Library of Michigan.
