The Shelburne Public Library received the Excellence in Accessibility Award from the Town of Shelburne Accessibility Advisory Committee during the regular Council meeting held September 23, 2013 for their Daisy (Digital Access Information System) Reader Program.  A reading program to assist those that have difficulty reading print because of a visual, physical or learning disability. 

 In partnership with the CNIB, the Shelburne Public Library is able to provide DAISY talking books for patrons with “print disabilities” such as blindness, vision impairment, or dyslexia.

 Donations from residents and organizations within the Town of Shelburne assisted the Library with implementing the program and continue to assist with funding the program on a regular basis.  Currently the Library has 104 talking books that are being rented each month and have over 200 titles available.  The DAISY Reader Program has also assisted local children with learning disabilities through their TD Summer Reading Program.

 Cathy Earle gladly volunteers her time every week visiting the seniors’ at Shelburne Residence and Dufferin Oaks promoting the DAISY Reader Program….”the seniors’ love it, they get so excited when they see me”….

 For more information regarding the DAISY Reader Program please contact the Shelburne Public Library (519) 925- 2168 or visit their website www.shelburnelibrary.ca
