WeareResources forreading assistance

Everyone should be able to enjoy reading, even those who are visually impaired or have some other condition that makes reading text, or even holding a book, more difficult. Marilyn Stevenson, coordinator for the Talking Books Services Section of the New Hampshire State Library, will present at the Weare Public Library’s monthly Community Coffee on Jan. 4 at 9:30 a.m. The Talking Books Program exists to meet the reading needs and interests of New Hampshire residents who are physically unable to see, handle or process printed material comfortably. Talking Book Services provides library materials to more than 2,000 New Hampshire residents and lends more than 70,000 audio and braille books each year. It lends a wide variety of books and magazines, recorded by professional actors. Anyone with a vision problem, a grasping problem, or an information-processing problem that does not affect intelligence is eligible for the Talking Books Program. Coffee and refreshments will be served at the presentation. Community Coffee is a chance for area residents to meet and learn about topics of local interest in an informal setting. No registration required. The library is located at 10 Paige Memorial Lane. For more information, email wearepl@comcast.net, call 529-2044 or visit the library online at wearepl.wordpress.com.
