Cuyahoga Falls Library announces the purchase of three new AWE Learning’s All-In-One Workstation Computers. Each computer contains 85 award-winning, pre-loaded educational games designed for ages 2 – 12.

All content is STREAM-aligned (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Art and Music, and Math). AWE Learning Stations are plug-and-play, with no internet connection, offering young learners a safe digital learning environment.

The wide variety of interactive content will keep kids engaged, and most importantly, learning. Educational titles include handwriting (including cursive), e-books (fiction, classic non-fiction, and poetry), coding, sight words, cyber safety, and more. 

To use the new AWE computers, visit the Children’s Department at the Cuyahoga Falls Library.

Cuyahoga Falls Library received a Certificate of Commendation at the Cuyahoga Falls City School District Board Meeting for demonstrated partnership with the district and engagement with students and staff.

School Board President Karen Schofield announced the recognition. Tina Lindy, Elementary Media Specialist, presented the certificate to Library Director Valerie Kocin. Library Board President Deborah Ziccardi was also in attendance.

"We are honored to accept this certificate on behalf of the Cuyahoga Falls Library staff and board," said Director Kocin. "We truly enjoy working with you, Tina, and with the teachers and students and look forward to continuing our partnership in the future."

The ongoing relationship between the library and the school district is a vital part of ensuring students and families stay connected to the information and resources they need to achieve their educational goals.

The Children's Department, in particular, plays a crucial role in school outreach and student support. Pictured is the Cuyahoga Falls Library Children's Department staff with the certificate.
