Thanks to a grant from the Federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) administered by the South Carolina State Library (SCSL) the Sumter County Library has been able to purchase After School Edge computers. These computers are designed for children ages 6-12. They feature more than 50 educational software titles covering a variety of curriculum areas including reading, science, and math.
Robert Harden, Director, said "The library is pleased to be able to provide these computers as part of our computer services. They will supplement our very popular Early Literacy Stations and provide a valuable educational tool for the community."
The After School Edge computers software titles include I Love Science!, Britannica Encyclopedia, Eyewitness History of the World, Math Blasters, and many more programs across the curriculum to help students improve their skills and provide an enriching out-of-school time activity.
