These items are available to check out for 3 weeks at a time and are conveniently contained in plastic totes and nylon bags.  An index of the materials is located in a binder on the Literacy & Special Needs shelf.  Literacy and Special Needs items are a valuable resource for parents, caregivers, teachers and therapists to enhance and add variety to the materials they already make use of.  Ask any Youth Services staff member for a tour of the collection or for more information.


*The Literacy & Special Needs Collection was made possible by an anonymous donation*


Braille Collection

Come explore the Braille book collection that has now been added to our Literacy and Special Needs Collection!  A grant provided by the Village Club Foundation made this collection possible.  We have board and picture books shelved at the end of the Literacy and Special Needs Collection and chapter books located in the Adult Department near the Random Stuff Collection (we did not have room on the Youth shelves for them).  If you have any questions about the collection, feel free to ask!
