Low Vision Assistive Device Available for Use at St. Martin Parish Library

St. Martin Parish Public Library is announcing the availability of assistive technology for those with vision impairments.  The Topaz Video Magnifier is a low vision magnifier that can assist with tasks such as reading fine print. The Topaz Video Magnifier is housed in the library branch located in Breaux Bridge.

Availability and accessibility is important to St. Martin Parish Library’s mission of providing all patrons of the parish with equal access to high quality informational and technological resources to meet the diverse needs of the community for information, life-long learning and enjoyment.

Patrons with low vision may also be interested in the State Library’s Talking Books and Braille Library (TBBL) program.  TBBL provides free public library service to Louisiana residents of all ages who cannot easily read standard printed materials due to a visual impairment, physical disability or a reading disability whether it is permanent or temporary.

For more information on the Topaz Video Magnifier, call or visit the Breaux Bridge branch of the St. Martin Parish Library. The phone number for that location is 337-332-2733.
