Posted on Monday, May 28, 2012 7:06am

A grant is going to allow Southern Santa Barbara County’s libraries to add a number of touch screen computer stations, featuring educational programs for young children.

The $65,000 grant from the Women’s Fund of Santa Barbara will allow for the purchase of 17 computers equipped with child friendly menus, special keyboards, and about 30 English, and Spanish language learning games. The systems are being set up at the Goleta, Eastside, Montecito, Carpinteria, and the main Santa Barbara library.

The kids learn reading, math, art, and science while playing the games.
