Assistive Technology

The Library is excited to offer assistive technology devices for those confronting issues using conventional technology.

Whether low vision is an issue or books are difficult to hold, the Library has various ways to help bring the joy of reading to everyone! Some of our accessibility options include:

  • A great computer setup with fabulous programs for any situation

  • Two ways to scan documents

  • Both a large type keyboard and regular USB keyboard for ease of use. Our large type keyboard also only enters 1 keystroke for each depression no matter how long you press the key

  • A Daisy Reader and a wide selection of Talking Books that patrons can borrow to use at home

  • A Merlin Magnifier:
              Our Merlin allows you to ergonomically control screen
                 position, size, colours, and brightness!

              2.7x to 84x magnification
              24" LCD Display
              Allows people with Low Vision, Macular Degeneration,
                Retinis Pigmentosa, Glaucoma and Cataracts to 
                regain their visual independence!

If we don't already have a way to bring reading to you...
we'll find one!
