Assistive Devices

The library offers a collection of assistive devices for people with disabilities. This collection includes a variety of handheld magnifiers, as well as book holders, large print playing cards, and other items that are available to check out. See a complete list of assistive devices here.

The library also owns a state-of-the-art CCTV text magnifier. This magnifying device can help those with low vision to read books, sort out their bills, or decipher a prescription medicine bottle.

Seniors without transportation and anyone limited in their ability to visit the library due to illness, surgery, or disabilities are eligible to receive free delivery of library materials at their home or residential facility. Homebound patrons must live in Bloomingdale and have a valid library card. Call the Adult Services Department at 630-924-2730 or fill out our online application to make arrangements.
