Early Literacy Station

Early LiteracyThe Friends purchased an Early Literacy Station for the Children's Department. This dynamic all-in-one digital learning station for children ages 2 to 8 features more than 60 educational software titles spanning seven curricular areas. It is easy and fun for children to use.

This gift was made possible in part by donations made in memory of Patrick Crowley, who, along with his wife, Jane Erwin, was a long-time and active supporter of the Friends.
