90% of Nebraska libraries have device that helps visually impaired read

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Nebraska libraries are becoming more accessible, especially for the visually impaired.

The Nebraska Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired says 90% of Nebraska public libraries now have an electronic video magnifier, a big change from six months ago.

This device enlarges the text in reading materials, as well as adjusting the brightness and color.

Using state and federal funds, all public libraries in the state were offered the device at no cost.

Many libraries also offer audio books and recordings, called Talking Book Libraries.
