New “AWEsome” Computers

Computers Highlighted in 8 Week Pizza and Early Literacy Evening Programming for Children 3-5 years at Central Library.

Wednesdays, March 30 through May 8
6:00 pm

New at OCPL City Branches this year are exciting new computer systems designed to help advance early literacy skills in children ages 2-10. The state of the art systems are safe, stand alone computers that are not connected to the Internet and offer age appropriate award winning educational and fun games for children in the circular areas of reading, math, science, social studies, writing, arts and music.

The computers are available for use by children during the open hours of the city branch libraries. However, Central Library announced its continuing 8 week Pizza and Early Literacy Story Time Programs. Every Wednesday at 6:00 pm from March 20 – May 8 join in at Children’s World on the 4th floor of Central Branch Library for traditional story time programming combined with educational computer games designed to promote early literacy in children ages 3-5 and free pizza and juice!

The games are fun and entertaining with recognizable children’s characters such as the cast of sesame street, Dora the Explorer and Diego from Nick Jr. However, the games also emphasized the five main skills of early literacy: talking, singing, writing, playing and reading. By developing these skills parents and caregivers are ensuring a great start to their Childs launch into the world of early literacy.

Pizza and Early Literacy Story time was only open to parents and caregivers with children ages 3-5.

Children’s World is located at Onondaga County Public Library Central Branch at 447 South Salina Street, Syracuse NY 13202 http://www.onlib.org

This programming is supported by funds from the New York State Library Family Services Grant Program.
