Literacy Computers at the Library

The Ada Public Library is proud to announce the arrival of two literacy computers in the Children's Department! The computers, geared toward kids ages 2 years - 2nd grade, offer the library's young patrons an opportunity to practice literacy skills with activities and games via ABC Mouse

The computers were purchased with the help of a 2014 Hardin County Community Foundation grant. Many thanks go to this amazing foundation--we know the children at the library will surely appreciate the computers! 

Pictured is Landon Mosher, age 4, enjoying the new literacy computer with his mom, Jessi Mosher!
