More and more, the needs of blind americans are being recognized.  Last June, the Department of Education asked states to promote braille instruction.  The National Federation of the Blind is demanding ereader accessability for visually impaired people.  And the Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped still offers various resources to these citizens.

At Greenwich Library, we offer access to audio books here as well as assistive technology, including the Focus 40 braille keyboard. Find out more about what we offer on our ADA page by clicking here

ACCESSHEALTHCT.pngFollowing up on my last post here, a colleague of mine (thanks SS!) dug up some more websites that can assist people in Connecticut who have any questions about the Affordable Care Act, and how to sign up for coverage.  The ACA goes into effect today.

The sites include Access Health CT ("Connecticut's Official Health Insurance Marketplace") and it's FacebookTwitter & YouTube pages; the United Way of Connecticut, and the Courant's "13 Things To Know About The State's Health Insurance Exchange".

Add the ones I listed in my previous post here and you should have a good idea of how to navigate the new insurance exchange.  Feel free to contact me and/or the rest of the staff at Greenwich Library for further assistance.
