The Cape May County Library provides multiple options that can be of use to patrons who are visually or physically impaired. This includes those who have difficulty reading standard print, holding a book, or turning the pages of a book. If you need any assistance, please always feel free to ask a library staff member. Assistance with eBooks and eAudiobooks can be directed to our Technology Learning Center.
Large Print 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. We also provide 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 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.
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.
The Cape May County Library has a handicapped computer at the Cape May Court House branch on Mechanic Street. This computer has a touch screen, can read text to you, and has larger icons and text settings. It is also located at a table that is wheelchair accessible.
