Sharing Information Is Empowering

VIRN has been offering the Tech-Ease program for over ten years. We pride ourselves on sharing information about tools and technology to help the community of people who are vision impaired, their family and friends have equal access to information, download audio books, music and other reading materials through public library services, use GPS for mobility and independent travel and much more. We also welcome and think it is great seeing our young community members taking time to share information to keep up with today's changes in technology.
