Have you ever struggled to read a phone book, cookbook, prescription directions or the current best seller not yet available in large print? Would you like to see clearly the details of stamps, coins or pictures?
The Friends of the Newark Free Library recently presented the library with a low vision magnification reader for use by the public. The SmartView Synergy machine magnifies and enlarges text, objects and actions, and offers a wide field of vision to easily display a document?s full width. It can be used in the library to view a user?s own materials, as well as books and other items found in the library?s collection. Now people with vision problems will be able to view magnified images of a wide range of items, such as books, photos, instruction booklets, prescription bottles, etc. on a large clear screen. The crisp visual display can be manipulated to suit the needs of a variety of vision problems.
The reader is available for use any time the library is open. Though its controls are simple and easy to use, staff members will also be available to help in getting started.
A library patron uses the device to read a small cookbook.
Gently used children's books donated by Newark Free Library patrons repeatedly overflow the attractively decorated milk crate near the book check-out counter.
The Child Development Center at DelTech, Head Start branches, Bear YMCA reading program, and Hudson Center, Newark, are among the recipients of over one thousand children?s books distributed.
Donations are still being accepted at the Newark Free Library. Patrons are encouraged to continue to support the effort. The importance of getting books into children?s hands cannot be overstated.
The members of Alpha Chi National Honor Society of Goldey-Beacom College under faculty director, Ann Kneaval, held a children's book drive and were responsible for the donation of many of these books.
Please join us in helping our neighbors.
We thank you in advance for your contributions.
