The Greenburgh Public Library has been newly outfitted with an audio induction loop, helping those with hearing devices enjoy a variety of programs without the background noise that can sometimes cause interference. It is the first library in Westchester County to have such a system.
The audio induction loop, unveiled last week, was donated to the library by the Westchester Chapter of the Hearing Loss Association of America. It was installed in the multipurpose room, which hosts numerous programs, including these that are coming up this week:
Wednesday, April 30: 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.: College is Coming – Are You Ready? (College funding solutions program)
Friday, May 2: 2 to 4 p.m.: Cyber Seniors: Computer Information and Collective Sharing of Technology (Part of the Greenburgh Public Library’s “Illuminate Your Brain” series for seniors)
Funds for the audio induction loop were made possible by proceeds raised from the local chapter of the Hearing Loss Association of America’s 2013 Walk4Hearing.
The Westchester/Rockland Walk4Hearing will take place at 11 a.m. May 17 at FDR State Park in Yorktown Heights.
