Electronic Magnifiers: Now Available for Check-Out
If the text in our large print books just isn't big enough for someone in your family, you can now check out an electronic magnifier that plugs into your television. Turn your TV to video input, then place the "monomouse" over the text you'd like to read, and the text will appear magnified on the TV screen.
The good news is that they can be checked out for a month. The bad news is that there are two of them, and one is already checked out. We're glad to put you on hold for a monomouse if you ask.
By the way, libraries have been known to check out stranger things - for example, in 2005, libraries in Iowa lent over 2,000 cake pans to their patrons.
