Braille and Large Print Materials

We have a limited number of materials available in these formats. The one Braille resource we provide is a Bible, located in the Reference collection. Large Print materials consist largely of fictional works. We are also able to borrow materials from other libraries to supplement our collection, via Interlibrary Loan.

Texthelp Read&Write literacy software is installed on all computers in the electronic classroom on the second floor and on the computer in room 106.
