An organized collection of reference sites and online databases covering a wide variety of topics.

Use the topics to the left to look through our Databases and eResources.

The Cape May County Library provides multiple options that can be of use to patrons who are visually or physically impaired. This includes, but is not limited to, those who have difficulty reading standard print, holding a book, or turning the pages of a book. If you need any assistance or have questions, please always feel free to talk to a library staff member. Assistance with eBooks and eAudiobooks can be directed to our Technology Learning Center.
All services listed on this page, including technology help, are free of charge.
Large Print Books, Braille Books & eBooks
The library provides large print book collections at all of our branches. The text of these books is larger than the standard size often found in books. The library also has a collection of braille books in our children's collection at the Cape May Court House library on Mechanic Street.
The Cape May Court House Library on Mechanic Street also has a Hearing Impaired collection in the children's room. This collection contains books about sign language, as well as books that tell stories and include the signs for telling the stories.
Since all Cape May County Library books can be easily shared between our branches, you are not limited to what is on the shelf at your local branch. You can place a hold and have any book sent to your local branch. Please talk to a staff member if you would like assistance placing a hold on an item. If the Cape May County Library does not own what you are looking for, you can place a request to have it sent from another library in the state. All these services are free.
We also provide free eBooks, which can be downloaded and read on a computer or eReader. Most eReaders are light weight and allow you to enlarge text to a comfortable size.
Patrons can also take advantage of our large audiobook collection. We have books on cd, Playaways (which are books recorded on a small device you can check out, only a AAA battery and headphones are needed), and eAudiobooks. eAudiobooks are sound recordings of books which can be downloaded and listened to through a device like a tablet or iPod. Again, all these services are free.
Talking Book & Braille Center
The Talking Book & Braille Center serves New Jersey residents of all ages, providing no-cost, home-delivered services. This program is run by the New Jersey State Library, not the Cape May County Library. If you would like more information about the Talking Book & Braille Center, visit their website by clicking here.
Handicapped Computers
All Cape May County Library computers have magnifiers, can read text to you, and can have an onscreen keyboard. All patrons can use these services simply by logging on to any library computer. If you need assistance using these services, please ask a staff member at your local branch.
Text Enhancement Machines
The Cape May Court House Library on Mechanic Street and the Lower Cape Library located in the Villas have text enhancement machines, which will enlarge type and change contrasts on print material. This allows you to bring a regular book to the machine and have the text enlarged on a screen. If you would like to use a machine, please speak to a library staff member.
Braille Writer & Braille Slate
The Lower Cape Library in the Villas has a Braille Writer, which is a typewriter for braille. The same library also has a braille slate, which can be used to write braille. Both of these items are available for use within the library. Please speak to a library staff member to use them.
