The Friends of the Statham Library have made a $1,000 contribution toward the purchase of a new Early Literacy Station computer for children who visit the Statham Public Library.
The Early Literacy Station is an educational computer for children ages 2 to 8 featuring more than 50 top-rated software programs spanning seven areas of learning. Kids are instantly engaged by an imaginative interface that includes touchscreen gesturing and page-turning functionality. No Internet connection is required, so the system is safe and secure for even the youngest of library patrons.
The Statham Library will host a reception celebrating the Early Literacy Station at 6 p.m. today, Dec. 18, and will honor the Georgia Club Foundation, the Statham Friends of the Library and the City of Statham for their commitment to technology in education for the children of Statham.
