Local Libraries Receive Grant to Install Hearing Loops
The Outagamie Waupaca Library System (OWLS) has been awarded Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funds to improve accessibility at six of our member libraries’ locations by installing hearing loops. This is the third in a series of LSTA grants for hearing loops, and we now have hearing loops at service desks in all sixteen public libraries in Outagamie and Waupaca Counties. Four OWLS member libraries have looped meeting rooms.
A hearing loop can cover a small area at a service desk or circle a meeting room. The loop is connected to a sound system and transmits sound wirelessly to a receiver called a T-coil in the listener’s hearing aid or cochlear implant. No additional equipment is required. Hearing loops are discreet and flexible because they allow listeners to use them anywhere within the range of the loop.
More individuals have hearing loss than any other disability. Installing hearing loops at library service desks ensures that public library services are fully accessible to patrons with hearing loss.
The following libraries have installed hearing loops at service desks in 2013: Hortonville Public Library, James J. Siebers Memorial Library in Kimberly, Gerard H. Van Hoof Memorial Library in Little Chute, Marion Public Library, Scandinavia Public Library, and Shiocton Public Library.
The Outagamie Waupaca Library System (OWLS) is one of 17 public library systems in Wisconsin. We support 16 public libraries in Outagamie and Waupaca counties.
This project is supported by Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funds, awarded to the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction by the Federal Institute of Museum and Library Services.
When most of us think of the library, we think of books. And that's true, Marion Public Library has a wonderful selection of books for all ages, fiction and non-fiction. But did you know our library has so much more than books? Here's some other great things we have to offer here at Marion Public Library:
-Videos and DVDs- We have an extensive collection of videos and DVDs here at the library! You'd be surprised--we even have new releases that you'd find at the video store. And even better--checking a video out from the library is FREE, and you can have them for a full week!
-Audio Books- Don't have time to read a book? Have trouble seeing? Taking a long car trip? Audio books are for you!
-Playaway- These are the same as audio books, except they're in MP3 form. All you need is a AAA battery and ear buds (ear buds are available at the circulation desk) and you're in business.
-Puzzles, Puppets, Educational Toys, Video games and Books on Tape and CD- We all know what the weather has been like this week. Are the kids bored with their same old toys? Bring them to the library! There's so much to choose from, they're bound to be having fun before you know it.
-Magazines- Can't afford to subscribe to all the magazines you want to? You're in luck! You can stop in and sit on a cozy chair and read the latest issue, or back issues of magazines are available for checking out. The library also has newspapers for you to enjoy, too.
-Computers and Wireless Internet- Sometimes it's hard to get internet access, or you don't have access to a computer at home. Come visit the library, and use one of our computers, or bring your own laptop and use our wireless internet! What better place to work on a project or online work than in the library setting.
The best part? All of these are available for no cost to you! Come in soon and take advantage of the wonderful materials to choose from at Marion Public Library!
