Assistive Technology Equipment
The library has three pieces of assistive technology to help our patrons who are blind, visually impaired, or have trouble accessing the printed word. Georgia Library Service for the Blind and Print Disabled (GLS) has acquired this assistive technology on behalf of Georgia Public Library Service (GPLS) for each library system in Georgia. Patrons can make an appointment to use the equipment at any branch; to do so fill out the form below or contact your branch.
