Good News for Patrons with Print Disabilities  The New York Public Library has partnered with Bookshare, an online database of accessible of Ebooks that will read themselves aloud with the computer or mobile device's voice, while highlighting enlargeable text onscreen. Penfield Public Library and any other library in New York State can help our patrons obtain free access to over 370,000 accessible Ebooks/eAudiobooks from home.

There is no wait or hold queue and patrons can request titles to be added. Bookshare usually charges a fee for non-students, but the new partnership makes it free to all New York Public Library card holders. Anyone who lives, works, or pays taxes in New York state, may apply for an NYPL card online. Once a person has activated a library card, he/she should call 917-ask-nypl to get the free Bookshare promo code.
