Sometimes there is a race to use the new AfterSchool Edge Tablet at the Slater Public Library, obtained through a grant from the Story County Community Foundation (SCCF). Gradeschoolers Atticus Crisler and Brayden De Vries log on to improve their reading and link into science and social studies as Mary de Baca, SCCF advisory board member looks on. Jennifer Gogerty, library director, indicated that the Early Literacy Station, also purchased with the SCCF grant, is popular with youngsters ages 2-8. The library annually serves more than 26,000 patrons from Slater and surrounding communities of Cambridge, Huxley, Kelley, Polk City and Sheldahl. Contributed Photo
