Catching up with library members at the Sandown Racecourse

Recently Library staff caught up with some lovely library members. This all happened whilst blind and low vision people let loose with their inner hoon by racing around the Sandown racecourse amongst the revving of engines and the smell of fuel. The library staff taught people how to use the envoy connect player, access the free VA connect app and find out more about our library. It was a great day for everyone and it was lovely to meet and chat to those people who visited our table for help.
