MonoMouse


Have you heard about the MonoMouse? Well, the device is an easy to use magnifier that allows people with poor vision to read text easily. The MonoMouse simply plugs into the back of your television, and any text that is placed under the mouse is enlarged on the screen. You can now easily read books, newspapers, magazines, even prescription bottles.

Central Library now has two of the devices. The MonoMouse can be checked out for three weeks and renewed once if there are no holds. The MonoMouse can be sent to branch libraries for hold requests.

These devices are on trial for three months so let us know what you think.

If you would like more information or would like to try the MonoMouse, just ask a librarian or call (205) 226-3600.

Take a look at the Bierley Electronic Magnifiers website to find out more about this easy to use device.

Was the feedback positive? I'm thinking of getting one for my mum.
