The Ronald McDonald House Charities have awarded a grant of $13,300 to the Friends of the Royal Oak Public Library for the purchase of four AWE Early Literacy Stations. These computer stations will benefit preschool and elementary aged children who are acquiring reading and math skills. The community is invited to a short dedication ceremony of the new AWE Early Literacy Stations on Tuesday, February 26 at 6:45 PM at library.
The four computer stations will have a positive impact on helping children gain literacy and math skills along with acquiring some basic computer skills. They are preloaded with games and activities that cover seven curriculum areas for children ages 2-8.
For more information about the stations and the dedication please call Youth and Teen Services at 248-246-3725.
