Tees Valley Gateway

Two representatives from Redcar & Cleveland Library service belong to a group called “Tees Valley Gateway” which meets regularly with others from the Tees Valley to discuss ways of improving library services to blind and partially sighted people.

One of the projects the group hopes to get off the ground this year is a leaflet which will set out what the Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar & Cleveland and Stockton libraries can offer blind and partially sighted people. (Examples are: large print and spoken word books, reading groups for blind and partially sighted people, electronic magnifiers, audio described DVDs etc.
