Outreach Services provides customized services to Regina customers who:
- cannot read printed material
- cannot visit the library due to reasons of illness, age or disability.
We conduct personalized consultations with our customers to determine both their needs and interests so that we can make recommendations on what materials will be most appropriate and enjoyable for our customers to borrow from the library.
Outreach customers can access any materials from the library collections but of special interest are:
- large print books
- books on MP3
- books on CD
- described DVDs
- DAISY digital talking books
- downloadable accessible collections
