The computer is an Early Literacy Station™ (ELS) featuring more than 4,000 learning activities. The fun, interactive and engaging content spans all seven curricular areas: math, science & nature, social studies and geography, reading, art and music, writing and computer skills, and reference. The content is full of child-friendly images, sounds, songs and videos.

Pictured around the new children’s computer are Atlantic City Library Director Maureen Sherr Frank; Atlantic City Library Board of Trustees members Paul Spaventa, William Cheatham, Curene Clark Ervin and Mary Lou Faulk; and Ajaylah Butts, 6, Landon Hamilton, 4, Jaida Mead, 4, and Penelope Hernandez, 3.

This summer the Foundation has started a new campaign to raise funds to enhance services for children and teens — with a focus on educational programs for the fall.
