Services for the Blind or Visually Impaired at Otis Library

April 19, 2024

Otis Library is hosting a free seminar in their Community Room on April 19.

Representatives from the Connecticut Library for Accessible Books (CT LAB) and South East CT Community Center of the Blind share information about services that are available for the blind, visually impaired, and others.

CT LAB lends books and magazines in audio and braille formats, for free through the mail, to any Connecticut resident who is unable to read regular print due to a visual, reading, or physical disability. CT LAB Director Matt Geeza will provide an overview of resources available to CT LAB patrons, provide information about how to apply for service, and demonstrate the use of equipment available from CT LAB.

Wendy Lusk, Executive Director of the South East CT Community Center of the Blind, will talk about their 52-year history in the community along with their mission and the services, programs, products, and resources they provide to those living with blindness or visual impairments. Their work centers around "building a better future for the blind."

Registration is requested but not required for this free program.  Please register online at or call (860) 889-2365, ext. 122. Otis Library is located at 261 Main Street in Norwich and is accessible to people with disabilities.
