Decorative, with program title Tips Techniques and Technologies for people with Vision loss. BINGO sheets and iphone icons displayed.

The Brooks Free Library is offering a new monthly program for individuals who are blind or who have low vision. Beginning on March 19, the program will take place from 10:00 am – 11:30 am on the third Tuesday of each month.

Each program will begin with an opportunity to chat with other attendees while enjoying light refreshments. Then we will go on to discuss different techniques and technologies that you can use to perform daily tasks independently. Each month we will focus on a different task. Together we will explore various methods, strategies, devices, and available resources.

We will learn from each other as we share ideas and experiences. This is a program for and by people who are blind or who have low vision, so attendees will be encouraged to suggest topics of interest.

Volunteers will be available to provide assistance if attendees are not accompanied by a family member or friend. We will also offer, upon request, a link to attend the program remotely via Google Meet.

The program will take place from 10:00 am – 11:30 am on each of the following dates (Calendar Link Here):
