The assistance of Connecticut public and academic libraries in outreach is very valuable in spreading the word to the many thousands of eligible persons who may not be aware of our service. We’re hoping that a relative or friend of an eligible person will see the equipment display at their local library and help bring the eligible person into the program. An equipment display will also benefit your library as it reflects the library’s commitment to serve the blind and physically impaired community. We very much appreciate your cooperation and assistance.
