Latest from the Library

January 2021

Happy new year from the Vision Australia Library!

2020 was a big year of change for the library with upgrades to the updated Vision Connect App and i-access Kiosk, a new Website, and our move to the Bookshare platform. 2020 was a challenging year for many of us but our literary friends were there to teach us, take us on fictional adventures, and keep us entertained and informed. We hope you enjoyed Vision Australia Library’s selection of books, magazines, newspapers, podcasts and music Braille over the year.
