VIDEOPHONE FOR THE DEAF
Lithgow Library now offers a videophone (VP) for Augusta’s Deaf Community. We have partnered with Disability Rights Maine to provide access for people who are deaf and use American Sign Language (ASL). A video call can be made directly using ASL or with the help of an ASL interpreter who appears on the screen.
