The Members Cooperative Credit Union Community Youth Foundation has
granted $500 toward an Early Literacy Station for the Cloquet Public
Library. MCCU’s mission statement acknowledges projects that would
directly or indirectly benefit community youth. In a similar gesture, the
Wood City Riders Snowmobile Club donated $250 toward the Early Literacy
Station project. The Snowmobile Club has been a longtime supporter of
children’s resources at the library.
The Cloquet Public Library is in the process of replacing its outdated
computer stations for young children with the popular AWE Early Literacy
Station. The all-in-one learning station comes preloaded with more than 60
top-rated developmental software titles that encourage, engage and
challenge youthful patrons through a variety of interactive programs
promoting literacy, math, science, and the arts.
The total cost for one Early Literacy Station is approximately $2,800.00.
Two stations have already been purchased through generous donations from
patrons, the Friends of the Cloquet Public Library, the Kiwanis Golden K
of Cloquet, The Kiwanis Club of Cloquet and a grant from the Minnesota
Library Foundation. The current bequests will go toward the purchase of a
third station. The library’s goal is to acquire four AWE Early Literacy
Stations. For more information on the project and how you can contribute,
