Chester, PA, January 24, 2018 – AWE Learning, the leading provider of digital learning solutions for early learners, is pleased to announce it has received a platinum award in Library Works’ fourth annual Modern Library Awards (MLAs). The MLAs were created to recognize the top products and services in the library industry with a truly unbiased format. Products and services were submitted in the fall using a simple application, and then were posted on a private site with an enhanced description and attendant materials. These products were batched into small groups and sent to the LibraryWorks database  of more than 80,000 librarians at public, K-12, academic, and special libraries. Only customers with experience using these products/services in their facilities were permitted to judge the products/services, resulting in a truly unbiased score.

Each judge scored the product on a numeric basis from 1-10 on a series of questions regarding functionality, value, customer, service, etc.

Dr. Deborah B. Sorgi, AWE learning President & CEO said, “Receiving this award is truly an honor. I am grateful to our loyal customers and employees, LibraryWorks, and the MLA judges. AWE Learning is committed to providing exceptional resources and gold standard customer service to public libraries across North America. I genuinely believe that we do our part to combat illiteracy and promote a love of reading in all children, young and old.”
