Children's Cabinet gives out computers


NASHVILLE (AP) - The Governor's Children's Cabinet has given 137 children's computers to public libraries and family childcare programs in 47 counties across the state.

The AWE Early Literacy Stations feature more than 60 educational software titles focused on supporting early learning in children. The programs use engaging graphics to draw young children to learning.

Computer station recipients were chosen through a competitive process run jointly by the Children's Cabinet, the Tennessee State Library and Archives, and the state Department of Human Services.

The Children's Cabinet is co-chaired by Gov. Bill Haslam and first lady Crissy Haslam.

The governor says that giving children the necessary building blocks to learn to read is critical to their education and future success
