BARD - Braille and Audio Reading Download: Downloading to All Devices


If you have library patrons who are print disabled and members of the OLIS Talking Books Library program, and you would like to learn more about BARD, join us for a demonstration and training on how to download from BARD to multiple devices (laptop, iPhone, android phone, Kindle Fire, iPad). If you would like to try downloading to your own personal device, be sure to bring it with you. TBL staff will be available to assist you at the session as well.  If your library is not a member of Talking Books currently, you can apply for an institutional account for Talking Books to support your print disabled patrons love of reading.

Presenter Daureen Clyde has been an educator in the RI public-school system for over 24 years. As a Learning Coordinator for a major medical alarm company, she developed an Emergency Operator Training Program and helped launch Amazon Fulfillment warehouses in Fall River, MA and Jacksonville, FL. Her interest in the National Library Service, BARD program came as the result of helping her partner, Bill, maintain his independence and love of reading after losing his eyesight.

NOTE: There was a major sewer rupture on Sandy Lane. It is projected to take months to repair. This has affected the main entrance to the library. Here are the options to get into the parking lot, depending on the direction you are coming from.

Coming from Airport Rd to Warwick Avenue: Enter as usual on Sandy Lane, this part of the road is not effected.

Coming from the Apponaug circulator to West Shore Rd (Rt 117) or Main Ave (Rt 113):

Option 1: If you turn left onto Sandy Lane, you will be re-routed with a local traffic detour, behind Thayer Arena, that will bring you back on to Sandy Lane past the construction and you can use the normal library entrance.

Option 2: Stay on West Shore Rd, and enter the library through the baseball field parking lot. Take a left turn onto Glen Drive (just after Dear Hearts Ice Cream). Continue straight to the end, it will take you directly into the ball field lot.
