Hi! I just received the following information about a group discount on AWE early literacy and afterschool computer products that you may be interested. Those of you who attended OLA's Children's Services Division (CSD) meeting in March 2013 may remember Cynthia, Oregon's AWE representative, was there with a display.
Attached is the flyer I received about the group offer. I am including this because I don't think the information is widely available on their website since the deal is only being offered in a few states.
This is not an endorsement, please be sure to fully review all products according to your library's policies to make sure they best suit the needs of your community.
