SENIOR SERVICES

Library Material Delivery

The Louisburg Library District #1 provides outreach to community members who are unable to visit the library or do not have someone to pick up materials for them. We will deliver materials to residents in individual residences within the city limits, senior living sites or nursing centers. These services are available for individuals or groups.  For more information please call the library at .



Library Materials

Louisburg Library provides Large Print books and Audio books for our patrons who need visual assistance. More about our Library Catalog



Basic Computer Classes

"Your Window to the Future" is a selection of classes designed to help patrons acquire basic computer skills.  We don't want anyone to be left behind in this age of technology. More about Computer Classes


Library Activities/Mobile Library

In addition to having programs year-round and helping our patrons at the Library, we visit three sites in Louisburg.  At the Louisburg Senior Center we conduct a visual Remember When program quarterly.  Semi-annually we visit Louisburg HealthCare & Rehabilitation Center and Louisburg Vintage Park providing a selection of library materials for residents to check out. 


Talking Books

Recorded materials loaned free by the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped are available in recorded audio disc and audio cassette formats. Both disc and cassette recordings require specially designed playback equipment, which is loaned free to eligible individuals and institutions.

As Talking Books is a federally funded service, readers must complete an application for service. The application needs to be certified by an accepted authority such as a medical doctor, an optometrist, a nurse, a home health worker, social worker or others. In the case of a reading disability, an M.D. or D.O. must certify the application for service.

Pick up an application for Talking Books at Louisburg Library. More about Talking Books


Audio Reader

The Kansas Audio-Reader network is a reading and information service for blind, visually impaired and/or print-disabled individuals in Kansas and western Missouri. Services are offered free of charge to anyone in our listening area who is unable to read normal printed material.

24-hour closed circuit radio station provides readings of daily newspapers, magazines and best-selling books.

Other services are available including on-demand service, special request recording, audio description of live theater and a sensory garden in Lawrence featuring Braille-labeled plants appealing to both touch and fragrance.

You can pick up an application for free Audio-Reader's services at Louisburg Library.
