Greenwich Library is committed to equal access to services and collections for all patrons with extensive ADA assistance and equipment. From audiobooks to the Book Van and homebound delivery, the Library ensures that all Greenwich residents are well served.
In addition, ADA Librarian Ed Morrissey is available for one-on-one appointments or group presentations. If you or someone you know needs these services, please contact Ed Morrissey at (203) 622-7918 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Book Van, supported by the Friends of Greenwich Library, visits the town senior residences. Cardholders can choose books, including popular large print editions, audiobooks, CDs and DVDs. We regularly add to our extensive audiobook collection, many of which are available for download.
Homebound delivery is an option for Greenwich residents who are physically unable to visit the Library or its branches. Patrons can have materials mailed to their homes, with pre-paid envelopes included for the return. The Ruby is a portable handheld video magnifier which displays text on books, DVD & CD covers and other items on a brightly lit screen.
The SARA (Scanning and Reading Appliance) enables the reading of a wide variety of printed material including books, documents, mail and much more, for those with low vision, blind or deaf-blind. JAWS (Job Access With Speech) is a screen reader software for visually impaired readers that uses text-to-speech audio, or a Braille display via the Focus 40 Keyboard.
