Brentwood pilot program brings eReaders to homebound

Contra Costa Times – “This winter local homebound seniors will have a chance to enjoy a new high-tech way of reading thanks to an innovative new Brentwood Library program that will serve as a countywide model. Under the program, they will have the opportunity to borrow Kindle Touch eReaders to access popular books and magazines through the library. “Many people could benefit from them. It can read to you and you can adjust the size of the type,” local Contra Costa County Library Commissioner Shirley Peck said. “We aren’t the first library to do it, but it is quite unique.”
