Customer Spotlight

Windermere Branch Library

Two year old, Jonah, spent some time at the Windermere Branch Library, in Florida, during the holiday season. While at home, Jonah sees his mom working on the computer. Jonah loves interacting on the AWE Learning Early Literacy Station because he pretends like he is working too!

Osawatomie Public Library

The Osawatomie Public Library, in Kansas, has two AWE Learning workstations in its library. Shay Hanysak, Activities Coordinator at Osawatomie Public Library, said, “they [AWE Learning Workstations] are both in use all the time. The kids are drawn to them and love how easy they are to use!”

Shay suggests collaboration on the workstations with children and grandparents. The touchscreen helps ‘non-tech’ individuals familiarize themselves with using technology in a fun environment.
