Keene Memorial Library provides special materials and services for those with particular needs. We have a large collection of large print books and also a good collection of books on audio tape for the visually impaired. Also available to the visually impaired are audio enhanced video tapes, which use voice-over techniques to describe the action and scenery along with the personal appearance and facial expressions of the actors in the films. This makes possible enjoying a video along with sighted friends and family members.
Keene Memorial Library also supplies videos with closed-captioning for the hearing impaired.
More talking books and audio described videos are available from the Nebraska Library Commission. Your local library can help those who qualify to subscribe to these services and receive materials on a regular basis.
