Accessibility @ Your Library

Mobile Outreach
This service brings the library to customers who can't come to us!  For more details and a complete schedule, click here.

All locations provide access to Skype for all customers, including hearing-impaired individuals, who want to communicate with another party face-to-face. Skype enables signing communication through the use of a computer or laptop. For more information, call 483-7727.

Deaf Interpreting Services
The library offers deaf-interpreting at its programs if requested. To request this service, please contact the library branch where the program is to be held at least two weeks before the program. The library will arrange for an interpreter for the deaf to be at the program if one is available.

Text to Speech in EBSCO Databases
EBSCO databases feature a Text to Speech feature. They can be accessed at home through NC LIVE with a library card.  Please be aware that this service will expire on 12/31/14 when NC Live switches to ProQuest databases.  Ask library staff for more information.

Audio Books
The library has a large selection of audio books available both on CD and for digital download.  Your valid library card allows you to check out these items.

 Large Print Keyboards
Each library branch has a resource terminal with a large print keyboard.

Screen Magnifiers
Each branch is equipped with a screen magnifier that fits over a computer monitor and is available for checkout to use on a library computer. The magnifier allows you to see characters up to 30% larger than normal. A photo ID and valid library card are required. Contact your local library for more information.
