We are pleased to announce that the Library meeting room is now equipped with a hearing loop to enhance the program experience for our patrons with hearing loss.
A hearing loop is an assistive listening system that transfers sound—from a microphone or TV—directly to your hearing device or cochlear implant, via a tiny and inexpensive telecoil (t-coil) receiver.
All cochlear implants and approximately 65% of hearing aids have a built in t-coil. To use the hearing loop, simply turn on your t-coil by pushing a button on the hearing device. (This t-coil program may need to be activated by your audiologist.) The Library also will soon have hearing loop headsets that may be helpful for persons who are hard of hearing or do not have a hearing aid equipped with a t-coil, but would still like to utilize the loop.
