Representatives from the Iowa Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped have traveled throughout the state this summer attending Senior Wellness Expos and talking to Support Groups about library services. This is a great way for Iowans with visual impairments to become aware of what the library has to offer.  It also provides a chance for the library staff to meet some of the patrons we talk to on the phone.  If you know of a group or individuals that would benefit from hearing about the services the Iowa Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped offer, please call Leslie at 515.281.1296.  We would be happy to come demonstrate how to use the digital players, talk about our new service model of 10 books on a cartridge or just library services in general!  Our next stops include a visit to the Linn County Support Group in Cedar Rapids on August 10th, the Cedar Valley Senior Wellness Fair in Cedar Falls on August 11th and the Vision Loss Resource Fair in Clarinda on September 22nd.  Come visit our booth if you’re in the area!
