There are magazines, guides, trivia books, skits, reminiscing kits, sing-a-longs, musical instruments, tactile and sensory items, and games to choose from. We even have resources that are geared specifically to holidays, months, and seasons.
Large Print Materials
The library has a wonderful collection of large print materials. It consists of non-fiction titles, a variety of fiction genres, paperback romances, newspapers, and magazines. All of these materials are housed in the Red Carpet Services area located across from the Main Checkout Desk.
The library also has Pocket Talkers available for check out, which are amplification devices that help people hear sounds that are close to them while reducing background noise. The devices have a plug in sensitive microphone and come with headphones. Pocket Talkers can be used in many situations such as one-on-one conversations, listening to the television, or conversing in small groups.
Are you or someone in your family living with low vision? If so, magnifiers and other assistive devices may help you or your loved one perform everyday activities that can be hindered by low vision. Finding the right device for an individual’s specific needs, however, can be difficult. That’s why the library offers a variety of magnifiers and devices to use on site or checkout.
