Reference Librarian Janet Birckhead suggests the following resource:

August's Reference Resource of the Month



            The Long Branch Free Public Library has the Complete Directory for People with Disabilities.  If you are living with a disability or have a loved one who is, this resource is for you!  It is divided into two sections.  The first section includes general resources for people        with disabilities and features subsections entitled Assistive Devices, Camps, Computers, Education, Government Agencies, Independent Living, Libraries & Research Centers, Media, Veteran Services, Vocational & Employment Programs, and Rehabilitation Facilities. Most programs and services are listed alphabetically by state.  “Media” lists books, periodicals, and audiovisual materials for children, young adults, and adults with disabilities and for parents and professionals. The second section lists resources for people with specific disabilities, listed alphabetically.  

          Since it is in our reference section, it must be used in the library.  Ask the staff member at the Adult Services desk on the lower level to help you locate it or to assist you in its use.  When  you find what you need, photocopiers are available in the Adult Services Department. Copies  are $.10 per page.  Look also for The Complete Learning Disabilities Directory, The Complete Directory for People with Chronic Illness, and the Older Americans Information Directory.
