Ohio Library Loops Into Hearing Assistive Technology

Medina County (Ohio) District Library (MCDL) is helping patrons with hearing loss thanks to the American Library Association (ALA).  

The library in the northern Ohio town is among the recipients of ALA’s Libraries Transforming Communities (LTC): Accessible Small and Rural Communities grants, an initiative offers more than $7 million to small and rural libraries to better serve people who have disabilities. MDCL is using its $20,000 award to install hearing loop technology at its location in Medina, Ohio.
