  • Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan has announced that Mid-Continent Public Library has received two technology grants totaling $47,628 for AWE Early Literacy Stations at 28 library branches.
    AWE Early Literacy Stations are a developmentally appropriate, computer-based learning experience with a focus on emerging literacy skills, early mathematics and problem solving. Two of these stations are now installed in the children’s area at the North Independence Branch.
    MCPL received its first grant of $13,608 earlier this year to place the stations in the Blue Ridge, Camden Point, Dearborn, Edgerton, Grandview, Lone Jack and Raytown branches. These branches were chosen based on the demographics of their communities, including literacy rates and the amount of students on free and reduced lunch.
    The second grant of $34,020, received in April, will allow these stations to go into MCPL’s other branches, except for the Midwest Genealogy Center, later this year.
