SCCLS Uses Grant Money To Purchase OrCam Readers For Visually Impaired

The St. Clair County Library System was recently awarded a $22,106 Improving Access to Information grant from the Library of Michigan to purchase 6 OrCam Readers. OrCam increases independence for people who are blind, visually impaired or have reading difficulties. They can read text, including books, menus, computer screens and newspapers. All branches will have access to the device, but service will be starting with the Algonac, Ira, Marine City, Marysville and St. Clair branches in late October of 2019.  The Burtchville, Capac, G. Lynn Campbell , Memphis and Yale branches will begin the OrCam service in April of 2020. There is a mobile OrCam unit that is intended for demonstration purposes, please contact the LAMTB department at the Port Huron/Main branch (810 987-7323 ext. 2527) to book a visit.

For information on the device please visit orcam.com.

This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
