Here at the Sprucewood Branch EPL Library, a group of seniors are gathered in front of the Program Room. They have collected books with larger print & sort of formed an independent, off the books Reading Club of their own where they sit & read along side seniors & folks with auditory disability's who cannot read or grasp the concept of grammar unless the story &/or book idea is read II them.
This is an unbelievable service & whats really great is EPL provides the chairs outside the Program Room so the seniors can prepare their passage readings and then gives up the Program Room rent free. What a sublime concept. Even in old age, seniors are still students & just because some of them cannot read now doesn't mean they shouldn't have the pleasure of taking part in the pleasure of reading through voice transcription. Thus garnering the full & true library experience!
