Don't take it from us, take it from the people using the service: 97% of respondents of a recent patron satisfaction survey indicated they would recommend Washtenaw Library for the Blind and Physically Disabled services to friends and family members. This free service loans books, magazines, and videos in alternative formats (digital cartridge, recorded cassette, large print, Braille, and descriptive video) to individuals of all ages who are certified as unable to read or use standard printed materials as a result of temporary or permanent visual or physical limitations.
