We have one in our small children's area and no complaints since I've been with the library.

Subject: [Michlib-l] early literacy computers

Hi All,

I am wondering how many libraries have early literacy computers (AWE or other computers) with literacy/learning games/Tumble Books, etc. on them in their children's area?

East Lansing has for many years had computers, with age appropriate learning games on them and the Internet, in the children's area, however, since our remodel we have AWE computers and iPADs with early childhood literacy resources on them.  The computers are now geared to children.  We have gotten complaints from a group of parents about the children's computers in the children's area of the library.  I am wondering what libraries have computers in their children's areas and if you have received complaints?

Thank you, Kristin
