Thanks to a generous gift from the Lions Club of Canton, the library now has a collection of Optelec handheld and stand magnifiers available in a variety of magnifications for checkout to Canton and Plymouth patrons. Borrow a magnifier and take it home for a "test drive" to see if it is right for you! We are delighted to offer this new service and hope you will help us spread the word to any local friends or relatives in need of low-vision reading aids.
In addition to these new magnifiers, the library also has an Optelec Viewer available for use in the library, and a large selection of large print and audio books available. For instructions on how to use the Optelec Viewer, check out this video.
