Early Literacy Station™
The Millington Lions Club has donated an AWE Early Literacy Station™ to the Millington Arbela District Library. The Early Literacy Station (ELS) is a dynamic, turnkey all-in-one digital learning solution for children ages 2–8. It requires no Internet connection, so it is safe and secure.
The latest version features more than 60 educational software programs that have been designed to teach skills in math, reading, logic and other areas. The educational titles are displayed using engaging graphics and intuitive menus. The computer is equipped with a touch screen for little hands that cannot use a mouse.
The Millington Arbela District Library Board of Trustees and library staff is very excited about this donation. We are looking forward to the children of Millington enjoying the process of learning new skills and having fun at the same time. We are planning an open house to introduce the new computer to the community. However, you don’t have to wait, its available now.
The Millington Arbela District Library offers many services to those with special needs. For example, this Web site now supports more usage modes than ever before. Screenreaders, touch devices, and mouseless workflows all have improved ease of use and accessibility.
We also have available: audio books, home delivery, a CCTV text magnifier and plenty of handicapped parking. Read more about accessibility
Recently, the local Gleaners organization, some Millington Arbela District Library staff and their family members spent the day painting inside the library, and creating a new north side garden.
The new paint gives a needed fresh look to the interior. The north side exterior of the library building, a year ago the site of cracked concrete and mud, is now home to another attractive garden. The building is now surrounded on three sides by gardens.
Many thanks to all those who gave their time and energy to the benefit of us all. Volunteerism builds communities.
