The Andrews-Dallas Township Public Library has been awarded an AWE Early Literacy Computer through the Institute of Museums and Library Services.

The computer is loaded with more than 60 educational software titles, including ClueFinders, JumpStart and Reader Rabbit, designed to help students in preschool through fifth grade explore seven different curriculum areas.

Children can work independently on the computer to develop skills in pre-reading and reading, phonics, shapes, numbers, letters and colors. They can also practice math, geography, history and science skills.
The computer is available for use during library hours, and children are welcome to play and explore the many programs.

The library is located at 30 E. Madison St., Andrews. Hours are Monday and Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Tuesday and Thursday from noon to 7 p.m.; and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
