If you, or someone you know has difficulty reading regular print materials, the Connecticut Library for the Blind & Physically Handicapped in Rocky Hill may be able to help. Our collection of 30,000+ digital audio books includes bestsellers, biographies, romance, mysteries, westerns, children’s books and much, much more. The Library for the Blind & Physically Handicapped lends recorded books along with the necessary playback equipment, free of charge, to any Connecticut resident unable to read regular print due to a visual or physical disability. An application for service must be completed and signed by an appropriate certifying authority (such as a librarian). For more information call 860.721.2020 or toll free 800.842. 4516 to request an application or program information. An application for service can also be downloaded from the Library for the Blind & Physically Handicapped website @ http://bit.ly/1AclL1T
While we very much appreciate donations of materials for the collection and book sales, please remember a few things:
1. If you have a large donation (more than a bag or two), please call the Friends at (860)228-9312 x4.
2. We can not take moldy items or items that smell.
3. We can’t take encyclopedia sets, magazines or Reader’s Digest items.
4. We can not give you an estimate of how much your donation is worth, but we can give you a receipt of the number of items received.
Thank you for thinking of the Douglas Library when you donate items, your generosity helps us provide more for the community.
