Can't get to the library?
Bryant Library wants to keep our patrons 'in books.' The library has volunteers who deliver library material door-to-door for those patrons who are unable to get to the library due to a permanent or temporary condition.

If you are a Bryant Library card holder and find yourself unable to get to the library to pick up or return your books, please call our Adult Services Librarian, Beth Siegel, at 621-2240, ext. 245. She will arrange to have your selections delivered to your door and picked up by one of our volunteers.

Having trouble seeing the print?
If you are unable to read or use standard print material, you may be eligible for digital books and machines from Long Island Talking Books. LITB is a branch of the Library of Congress which produces books and reading material for readers who cannot hold, handle, or see well enough to read conventional print because of a visual or physical disability.

The transition to digital format offers users increased portability and ease of use. The books are recorded on small digital cards like those that store digital pictures. The digital book player has Braille labels, is lightweight and contains an entire book on a one-sided card.

Applications for talking books are available at the library. Please inquire at the Reference Desk (621-2240). We are happy to provide information and assistance to anyone interested in the Talking Books Program.
