Customer Spotlight

Monrovia Branch Library, IN
Monrovia Branch Library, part of the Morgan County Public Library, currently has two AWE Learning workstations. The two workstations sit side by side near the circulation desk on the children’s side of the library. They’re open for use all the time and open to anyone.”One of my favorite things about the AWE Learning workstations is that I can reassure grownups that they’re made just for children! No worries about not knowing how to use them, breaking them, or stumbling across any scary stuff…technology exposure we don’t have to worry so much about,” said Cassie Jones, Branch Manager. The workstation in the picture to the right was purchased in 2014 with the help of a grant from the Community Foundation of Morgan County.
