Library program teaches technology to people with vision disabilities ...

A new, free program offered through the Macomb Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (MLBPH) aims to offer alternative coping methods for this and other low vision issues beginning June 12.

 

“In addition to being able to offer materials to those with low vision, we’re very happy to be able to offer classes to introduce technology and techniques to our patrons to help them be more productive at home or in the community,” Clinton-Macomb Library Head of Popular Materials Emily Kubash said.

Licensed clinical social worker and Work-Life Solutions counselor Sharon Lotoczky will facilitate the course as part of the Vision Network Program. The sessions will help those with low vision learn techniques and technology to improve their lives in a variety of different areas, from home life to real world navigation."
