ACCESSIBILITY APP SURVEY

The Public Library of Brookline is looking to expand our iPad lending program and would like your input. We currently loan out iPads at the Putterham Library that come loaded up with accessibility apps and augmentative and alternative communication tools. This survey will help us to determine what kinds of apps and accessibility tools would most improve our patrons’ experiences at the Library.
Take the survey here!
