 New AWE Early Literacy Station and Afterschool Edge

The Fair Haven Public Library is pleased to announce the addition of an AWE Early Literacy Station with Afterschool Edge to our children’s room. The Early Literacy Station Platinum (ELS Platinum), delivers more than 90 award-winning, pre-loaded educational software titles, over 5,000 activities, directly on the workstation/tablet. With no internet required, we will be able to offer our youngest learners a safe learning environment on a digital platform. All content is STREAM-aligned (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Art and Music, and Math). Designed for ages 2 to 8 with a focus on literacy, young learners develop skills early that will prepare them for success in the classroom and beyond. The Afterschool Edge gives us additional titles designed for ages 6 to 12 is the ideal solution for elementary school-age children. With fun, engaging, and interactive content, children can continue to learn beyond the school day. The purchase of the AWE Literacy Station with Afterschool Edge was made possible by a grant from the Auer Family Foundation. The Auer Family Foundation has been supporting charitable organizations and promoting philanthropic involvement since 1993 when the Auer Family Foundation was founded by Peggy and Ed Auer. An important component of the primary mission was to encourage charitable volunteerism by their ten children and their spouses. The Foundation provides financial support to organizations benefiting from their volunteer involvement, and to encourage charitable giving in the family, the Foundation offers matching donations to charitable organizations.

Peggy and Ed Auer passed away in 2010. The family continues the Foundations’ work in their memory. The board and supporting staff are all members of the Auer family and have included their children, their children’s spouses, and many of their twenty-five grandchildren. Board members serve a five-year term, and are drawn from the family ranks. The AWE Early Literacy station will be available for children when the library is open. It is our hope that the addition of the AWE Early Literacy Station with Afterschool Edge will help us to better address the needs of children in the Fair Haven and surrounding areas.
