Come On In

Technology for Library Users with Disabilities

There are many exciting ways in which technology is empowering some people who have disabilities. At its best, technology can help people communicate more effectively and function more independently. It can improve quality of life. Many libraries are finding ways to facilitate adoption of technology for library patrons who have disabilities. Other libraries are working to find ways to add to the assistive technology at the library.

Making the library's technology user-friendly for children with special needs

Come On In! at the Skokie Public Library (IL) offers specialized services, programs, and resources for families and encourages children with special needs to "Come On In!" and enjoy the library.  The Youth Services Staff has been trained to better understand and serve children with disabilities. Join us for a free webinar to learn more about this successful program, with special attention to the technology involved.
