The following accessibility items are available for checkout and use within the library from the Information desk on the first floor:

Ergonomic USB keyboard - Designed to reduce or mitigate the repetitive stress injuries that using a keyboard may do to your hands, wrists, and shoulders after years of daily use.

Ergonomic USB mouse - Designed to limit or eliminate movements that have been known to cause repetitive strain injuries or aggravate these in people who already suffer from them.

large print high contrast keyboardLarge-Print / High-contrast USB keyboard - The large type and high contrast of these keyboards assist individuals with low vision by reducing eye strain. These keyboards also make typing easier for those with limited fine motor skills by eliminating multi-function keys.

track ball mouseLarge trackball USB mouse - Trackball mice are highly useful tools for those with dexterity and fine motor skill impairments, including carpal tunnel syndrome or arthritis. This mouse allows people to use differing or fewer muscles in their hands and wrists.

pocket hearing loopPocket Hearing Loop - This small personal amplifier is for one-on-one communications, and can be used at a service desk, when walking with a person to the stacks, or in a library classroom. Pocket loops are like a “focused headset”.

portable lap boardPortable Lapboard - Can be placed on the lap or across the arms of a wheelchair or mobility scooter. Lapboards effectively provide a desktop space for a mouse and keyboard (or laptop) while improving reach and comfort for individuals with whom using a standard desk is impractical.
