What equipment is available for people with low vision?

I recently saw an article that featured low vision assistive devices available at the library. I am particularly interested in a hand held digital magnifier. Do you have these availalbe for check out?

Thanks for asking! We are excited to be adding some much needed equipments to our libraries. This has been done with a grant received this year to make our libraries more accessible to everyone. We are just in the process of getting the equipment installed....everything should be in place by September 30. Each branch will have at least one of the handheld digital magnifiers. Some branches will also have equipment to magnify and convert text to speech. All branches also have Jaws and Magic software. Please ask at your closest branch, and staff can give you details!
