Lending Library

SportsVision is seeking the input of its end users in the development of a new program—a lending library that loans adaptive sports and recreation equipment for people who are blind or visually impaired.

Attendees will provide essential feedback on the program’s usefulness. Attendees will gain awareness of the lending library program and its possibilities.

Attendees will be able to enroll their agency/organization in the lending library program.

SportsVision develops opportunities for individuals who are visually impaired to participate in competitive sports and life-long leisure activities. This presentation will enable SportsVision to introduce a new program concept to all professionals that work with people who are visually impaired. Currently, lending libraries exist to loan out educational resources, audio and Braille books, and assistive technology. SportsVision plans to launch a different type of lending library- one that would loan out adaptive sports and recreation equipment and resources.

Agencies and organizations that serve people who are blind or visually impaired would be eligible to enroll in this new program, thereby allowing them to borrow items from the collection for a pre-determined time period. The library collection would include bell balls, beeper balls, adaptive sport kits, accessible games, activity books and videos, bowling rails, and much more. Vision teachers, agency professionals, and individuals who are visually impaired might borrow these items for physical education classes, parties, picnics, or simply for personal enjoyment. Such a library would combat the cost and availability barriers to accessible sports and recreation opportunities for people who are blind or visually impaired.

We encourage attendees to stop by our area to learn more about this exciting concept. While you’re visiting with us, you can check out some of the adaptive equipment first hand. We also hope you will provide feedback about the library’s potential usefulness and suggestions for items to be included in the collection. This will be a great time to pre-enroll your agency or organization in this innovative program.

Vision Teachers and Agency Professionals:
These questions are designed to help us collect data about the potential users and usefulness of a program that would loan out adaptive sports and recreation equipment for people who are visually impaired. Your answers will guide us in our program development as well as aid in our proposal preparation for potential funders. Thank you in advance for your time and careful consideration.
