Library Services for Everyone: ADA resources you may not know about

Information accessibility remains a cornerstone in the mission of libraries. At the Redding library, customers with disabilities can access a number of enabled devices.

For the deaf and hard-of-hearing community, a videophone allows customers to make outgoing video calls to parties with compatible devices.

For the visually impaired, a document enlarger magnifies printed materials.

An ADA accessible computer delivers magnification features, voice-to-text capabilities and a large-print keyboard for those with visual impairments and upper-extremity disabilities.

In addition, we can help you access thousands of copyrighted titles through the California State Braille and Talking Book Library (BTBL) or the Library eBook Accessibility Program (LEAP). Both services are free to Shasta Library customers.
Call 530.245.7250 or visit the Redding reference desk for more information.

Make a Difference: Tutors Needed!

In 2013, volunteers tutored over 100 adults in literacy skills including reading, math, computer proficiencies as well as GED and citizenship test preparation. Being a tutor rewards both the teacher and student. Bob Weissberg, who has tutored three learners, says “I enjoy the collaboration of working with individual learners, one-on-one. It's great to see what we can accomplish together, even with only one hour a week.” He appreciates the opportunity to make a difference as he watches students progress.

The library is now accepting tutor applications to accommodate waitlisted students. Training is provided. No teaching experience is required. Apply today. Call Kayla at 530.245.7237 or email kaylam@shastalibraries.org.
