Described Movie Series

The Talking Book / Special Needs Library now hosts a free movie in described format for the blind, visually impaired, senior citizens with failing vision and any adult that would enjoy a movie in this format. Described movies (also called "Descriptive") feature an extra audio track containing a narration of the action taking place on the screen. The narration is usually very subtle and inobtrusive allowing the viewer to also hear the dialogue and other sounds in the movie. This film series will be held in the Main Library Auditorium at 10:30am on the third Friday of the month. We would like for moviegoers to try to arrive at the Main Library around 10am so to allow time to navigate their way through the building.
