Children's Literacy Workstations
The Early Literacy Workstations are computers loaded with more than fortyfive educational software titles for children ages 2-10. The workstations offer children a safe, standalone computer not connected to the internet that is age appropriate, engaging, and academically relevant for children.
The English only Early Literacy station was purchased for the library by the Friends of the Amador County Library. A Second English and Spanish Early Literacy workstation was recently added. The second workstation was purchased for the library by the Friends of the Library and the Sutter Creek Woman's Club.
The workstations are available at the main library in Jackson. We encourage parents or care-givers to work together with their children to assist them in the seven curricular areas of reading, math, science, social studies, writing, arts & music, and reference.
