Who Benefits from the Library?

The library serves anyone who has trouble reading regular print books.

Part of the Library of Congress’ national network of Libraries for the Blind and Physically Handicapped, LBPD serves patrons with all types of print-reading disabilities including people who are blind or have limited vision, people with physical limitations, and people with reading disabilities. The library provides books, magazines and newspapers in useful formats such as Braille, digital audio, and large print.

With help from Friends, the library offers educational meetings and groups. Consider joining us for a book club discussion, a free Braille class or a Technology User Group (TUG) meeting.
