Information Center for the Visually and Hearing Impaired

In order to provide services for the visually disabled group, an “Information Center for the Visually and Hearing Impaired” was established at the 2nd floor of the main library. The Library has purchased computers and related assistive devices for visually disabled readers, added audio books, braille books, ordinary books with braille and other collections, and built a barrier-free space and environment. We welcome visually disabled readers to enjoy “reading” at the Library or call the hotline for librarians to check out collections and mail them to your place free.


Hotline for visually Impaired readers checking out library collections: 04-22625100 EXT 888.
