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
