    Every Saturday there's a free computer clinic from 1 to 4 PM. Learn or get assistance in web browsing, email, downloading audio books and more. It works best if you make an appointment.

    Please DONATE to the NYPL. This is the only library in NYC that serves the blind and people with low vision. The variety of books that they have is bare bones in comparison to what they could offer.
