New Resources Increase Accessibility to Library Programs and Resources
The library has recently acquired three mobile listening assisted systems to help enable patrons to better participate and enjoy library programs. We have also received from the New Jersey State Library's Talking Book and Braille Center a computer with Sitecue software which will magnify  text on a website as well as "read" for speech output.  Information on Accessibility at the library.
