On Tuesday 24th February 2004 Tadley Library held an Open Morning to coincide with the opening that week of the new Sainsbury’s supermarket. We invited local community groups and targeted in particular people who through some disability find it difficult to get to the Library.  Invites were sent to people belonging to the Home library service as it has been recognised for some time that though the Home library service provides an invaluable service to individuals in their own homes sometimes people would like to visit the library themselves even if it was infrequent. Transport is the problem and unfortunately still is. On this occasion Community transport were unable to help and so library staff picked up people in their own cars. 



So what did we do?
We provided tea/coffee and the all important biscuits. We had music provided by our Library manager’s father who played and sang to a concertina which was brilliant.  We had demonstrations of the free internet  which is available and the Accessible terminal.  This terminal has special software called Supernova that can magnify text and it can also read it back to you- it talks!!
