NEW LINK ALERT! We have a new service we are offering and I would like to walk you through what it is and how it can help you. There are plenty of reasons you might need any one of these services and we look forward to bringing more to the page. For now, let's talk about Adaptive Resources.
Once you come to our main webpage you will see this at the top:
You can click on Services for a list of all services available in the library, or you can click on the picture below to go directly to the Adaptive Resources page now. By clicking the picture below, you will taken to a page that looks like this:
If you clicked on Services, on the left you will see a list of service links that we offer. However, we will be concentrating on one in particular. You may click on the picture above to go directly to that page or click on Adaptive Resources under Services. Be sure to keep an eye on those other links as they are there to help you with any number of things besides our physical resources.
Once you’ve click on Adaptive Resources, you will see information regarding Program Accommodation Requests. The first link will be the link for Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance. You will also see the link to request Program Accommodations or Contact the library with your request. You will use these two links to let us know of any particular accommodation you need, whether you see it on our website or not, and we will do our best to make sure that happens for you!
Next is a list of Adaptive Equipment or "comfort kits". These were designed to include aides for people with neurocognitive needs in mind. You may check these out at the Circulation Desk. You may not leave the building with the kits, but you're more than welcome to use them for your stay at the library. These should be self-explanatory but scroll on to see a video of the kits if you need a visual!
Below are videos explaining the purpose of the comfort and vision kits available and what their uses are, as well as a link for HOW TO INSTALL NV DIGITAL ACCESS SOFTWARE (NVDA allows blind and vision impaired people to access and interact with the Windows operating system and many third party applications).
Finally, we have our last link to our Libby app where you can access Dyslexie, a font specifically designed for those with Dyslexia. You will have to go to the page to access the links as there is one for android and one for apple. SO VERSATILE!
Our website and links are constantly being updated with new information and we are always open to more ideas so please continue to come back and check on the page if there is something that you need or have requested! As always, we look forward to hearing your comments and thoughts below as well as seeing you in the library.
