Adaptive Technology

Hearing loop

Hearing loop systems are installed at service desks at the Downtown Library, Bethel Branch, and Sheldon Branch, as well as in event rooms at the Downtown Library. This easy to use technology works with your own hearing aids or with loop receivers we can provide on request.

Adaptive technology computer stations and Sorenson video relay service (VRS) stations are available at the Downtown Library.  They are reserved for people with disabilities who require specific adaptive software and hardware, and who cannot use other library computers.


Each station includes:

Library events

An ASL interpreter can be arranged for any library event with two business days’ advance reservation by contacting Eugene Public Library by email or phone: 541-682-5454.
