Chapter Lending Library

boys reading 2We have compiled a library of books and DVDs to share with you free of charge!  Most titles are written for parents of deaf or hard of hearing children.  There are guides to technology, autobiographies from deaf adults and parents of deaf children, and Hands & Voices guides to advocacy and education.  We also have an extensive collection of Kidpower resources to help you teach your children to be safe.

All you need to do is visit our library page and look through the listings to see available titles with descriptions.  Use the form at the bottom to request the book or DVD you want to borrow.  You can pick up materials at our monthly chapter meetings or request whatever method of pickup will work better for you.  

We know there are thousands of titles that would benefit out members.  If you know of one we don't have, please let us know about it.

It is not too late to request books for pick up at the March monthly meeting on Tuesday night.

While you are there, take a minute to check out our new website!
