CANCELLED: Stepping Over Print Barriers

How can I best support someone who cannot access print materials?

This is the question that many librarians, educators, and other service providers ask when they encounter people with print disabilities. Fortunately, there are many solutions that will provide those with reading barriers independence and the power of literacy! Join us on Tuesday, March 31 at Warwick Public library to discuss how different websites, E-Books, electronic book readers and other accessibility options (like those built in on smart phones) can break down these barriers. We will also provide information on applications such as Read2Go, Seeing AI, Voice Dream Reader, and BARD.

This information will help your patrons who have dyslexia, cerebral palsy, a visual impairment or other reading barriers.

If any reasonable accommodation is needed to ensure equal access or participation, contact the Office of Library and Information Services at (401) 574-9300 not less than three (3) business days in advance of the meeting or program date. More advanced notice is highly advisable.
