Senator John Bonacic visits the library
 
Senator John J. Bonacic (R/C/I-Mt. Hope) visited the Wallkill Public Library on Wednesday, September 14th. During this visit, the senator was able to see first-hand how the bullet aid funding he provided the library was used.
The library used the funding to purchase two new state-of-the-art early literacy computers. Library manager Lisa Palmer was on hand to show the senator the stations. Ms. Palmer chatted briefly with him about the importance of this newest technology. “These computers complement our current literacy program perfectly,” she said. “We chose these specifically because they are geared toward our youngest patrons, ages two and older. The content on these span all seven curriculum areas, including math and science, and allow kids to have fun so they’re not even aware they’re learning.”
Senator Bonacic agreed, saying, “Early literacy programs are essential for young children to grow intellectually, and I’m happy to report that many local public libraries, including the Wallkill Public Library, provide these programs. I was pleased to provide bullet aid to the Wallkill Public Library that was used to install literacy computers. This type of equipment will undoubtedly help children who use the library.”
The senator also delivered a framed Pen Certificate commemorating legislation he sponsored preventing those who live outside the library district from serving on the library’s board of trustees.
