PLAISTOW —The library would like to thank Mr. Thomas Cullen for the newest fun-filled addition to the children’s section: an AWE Literacy Computer Station. Mr. Cullen’s generous donation on behalf of his late wife, Constance Cullen provided a colorful children’s room rug, and the Literacy Station, a computer designed for kids to learn and build a variety of skills through animated software. The Literacy Station is up and running; kids may sign up with Miss Nancy for a thirty-minute session to try it out. Donations like Mr. Cullen’s are deeply appreciated by the library. The support of community members like him enhances the library’s atmosphere in countless ways.
