Hearing Loop at the Library: The library’s Tarbell Room is now equipped with a hearing loop! The loop sends a clear sound directly to hearing aids, without background noise, providing equal access to programs for those with hearing loss. All cochlear implants and most hearing aids have a built-in wireless receiver called a telecoil, T-coil or telephone switch. To use a hearing loop, users turn on the T-coil by pushing a button on their hearing device. This T-coil program may have to be activated by an audiologist. The library also offers headsets that work with the loop.
