Springfield Town Library Receives Grant

The Springfield Town Library applied for and received a Successful Aging Initiative Grant from the Council on Aging for Southeastern Vermont for program titled, "Don't Worry About the Fine Print". The $795 check has purchased magnification/reader software for the public access computers. The software the library chose is called ZoomText and is made and sold by a local Vermont Company in Manchester, AI Squared.

Russell Moore, Director of the Springfield Town Library said, "ZoomText will help make it much easier for people with visual impairments to use out public access computers."

ZoomText provides a wide range of magnification levels, allowing you to enlarge everything according to your needs. You can zoom in from 1x to 36x using the mouse wheel or keyboard.
