VisLibrary: On the Road again

in Latest News, Stories of Independence

Last week the Accessible Information Services were out and about with their roadshow, visiting your local community libraries. Partnering with the State Library of Western Australia, VisAbility Library engages with Perth communities to promote the range of services available to those with a print disability.

On Monday 28th, Tuesday 29th and Wednesday 30th August, VisLibrary visited City of Stirling libraries including Inglewood, Scarborough and Mirrabooka. The days started with a personal development session with library employees, with over 30 eager staff keen to learn about the range of equipment and services available. Afterwards, a showcase was set up for interested community and library visitors to browse and talk to our friendly team. Daily living aids were set up to entice people to trial and investigate which would work best for them.

Dinesh Burah, Manager of Information and Education services remarked “It was great to interact with the friendly community as part of our Library Showcase. We heard their needs and suggested quality, innovative solutions to help them on their journey to independence”. On behalf of VisAbility, we would like to thank the State Library of WA for their continued support, and the City of Stirling for letting us visit their libraries. Until next year, happy reading everyone!
