Care – Creating auditory resources for everyone
CARE – Creating Auditory Resources for Everyone
With funding from Libraries Transforming Communities: Accessible Small and Rural Communities, an American Library Association (ALA) initiative in collaboration with the Association for Rural and Small Libraries (ARSL), library staff are hosting conversations on aural health with experts to provide health information and resources to our community.
Many in our community are impacted by hearing loss due to exposure to high levels of noise in rural and agricultural environments. Additionally, the majority of people will face hearing loss as they age. Finally, families with hard-of-hearing children face unique challenges as well. In a society that does not account for those living with hearing loss, education and resources for hard of hearing and deaf individuals and their families are essential for our community’s physical safety and emotional well-being.
If you are interested in getting involved or taking part in the conversation, please contact library staff at 715-644-2004, or visit the library for more information.
