HEALTH AWARENESS

The 2014 LSTA Grant allowed the Daphne Public Library to offer materials and equipment for self health awareness of patrons.  A standing scale (with height measurement) is available o the right of the Rotunda.  Patrons may also may use a portable blood pressure cuff, or one of the  SAD or ‘Seasonal Affective Disorder’ lamps that are available for in-house use only.  SAD lamps are great for seasonal depression during shorter daylight hours. College campuses have been offering the lamps for students with great results.

The Library has added written and audiovisual materials on pregnancy, fibromyalgia, concussions, knee injuries, alcoholism recovery, obesity, diabetes and much more. Other materials include preventative exercise and diet books and DVDs. New exercise music CDs and DVDs for adults and children, as well as health and body books for children are also available.  

VISION AIDS

The Daphne Public Library offers Large Print books for children, youth and adults; Large Print magazines, and a selection of Braille books for adults and children.

A machine is available for in-house reading enlargement.
