Tri-Village Lions donate iPad Mini

The Tri-Village Noon Lions Club has donated an Apple iPad Mini to the Grandview Library to help the visually-impaired have access to e-books!

The Lions (whose traditional philanthropy is providing funding to vision causes) has also arranged training for Library staff on the visual-accessibility features unique to this Apple mini tablet computer. Plus, training materials in print and in Braille will be available for staff to give to visually-impaired patrons who require them.

Other e-readers (such as Barnes & Noble Nooks, Amazon Kindles and Sony eReaders) do not have navigation features that allow visually-impaired patrons to hear commands; the user must be able to see to navigate those e-devices.

Blind or otherwise visually-impaired Grandview Library patrons will have improved literacy opportunities by having access to an iPad Mini, thanks to this generous gift from the Tri-Village Noon Lions Club.

Thanks to the Lions for this gift and many previous gifts made to the Grandview Library, with special thanks to Lions Club member Jane Jarrow and help with training from The Ohio State University's Director of Assistive Technology Nolan Crabb.

Learn more about giving to the Library.
