Services for the Disabled

Live Oak Public Libraries now has new equipment for persons who are deaf or hard of hearing. The library has installed TTY (Text Telephone) equipment in our larger branches. This adaptive equipment allows people who have TTY equipment to communicate directly with library staff. Customers are now able to call the library using TTYs to find general and reference information.
