Customer Spotlight – The Yonkers Public Library, New York

Last year, The Yonkers Public Library purchased AWE Learning workstations for their three branches. They have three (3) Bilingual Spanish Literacy Stations, and four (4) Early Literacy Stations.

“They were easy to set up out of the box, require very little staff attention, and are in constant use by our young patrons,” said Edward Falcone, Library Director. “We have been very happy with our purchase; the smiles and compliments have more than justified our investment. It’s a wonderful product!”
