Assistive Technologies

A generous gift from the Walnut Creek Lions Clubs has made it possible for the following assistive devices in the Walnut Creek Library.

  • Assistive listening systems and ear-worn receivers (located in the Oak View Room, the Conference Room, and the Technology Center)
  • Hearing assistance systems at all library service desks, including a portable unit at the children’s desk that can be checked out for use in meeting rooms.
  • A headphone at the first floor information desk for use by people without hearing aids.

Hearing Assistive Technology (HAT) - induction loop systems are available at all library locations. These devices may be used with the t-coil in your hearing aid or we have receivers that may be used with a headset.
