This program is designed to provide for basic needs for our “neighbors". Time Dollar uses a two-step approach in our work. The first step is called “giving fish” through our “Los Vecinos” (neighbors) program where we provide food, eye glasses through Prevent Blindness Texas and service referrals. The second step is "Basic Case Management" where we offer help filling out forms, reading letters, providing service referrals and any other type of assistance required based on the need. Christmas gifts are provided through Elf Louise Penelope.

COVID-19 Notice

BiblioTech East, BiblioTech South, and BiblioTech West are currently open Monday-Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.

If you are going to visit us, please be sure to wear a mask and follow staff guidelines for proper social distancing. We are also requesting only one person per household in the branch whenever possible, as we are down to 25 percent of our capacity.

If you would like to check out a hotspot or tablet, please call ahead to reserve the device. 

We have innovative technologies that assist visually impaired patrons in utilizing the digital programs we offer. For use outside of the library: • iPads are available for check out for up to six weeks. These iPads are capable of using Siri, and have a VoiceOver function to open up the apps we offer, such as Hoopla (music, movies, audiobooks), Mango Languages, or cloudLibrary (ebooks and audiobooks). For use within the library: • Focus 40 Blue Wireless Braille Display, which connects to computers, iPads, and phones using Bluetooth, allowing navigation through documents and applications using the latest Braille technology. • The Braille Display also converts text to both contracted braille and un-contracted braille. This text is displayed on a Perkins style keyboard, which makes it simple to read, as it follows along, mirroring word for word at your own pace. • The Pearl Portable Reading Solution is essentially a camera on a folding post, which brings visually impaired patrons convenient portable access to any reading material they bring in to BiblioTech. The folding camera opens easily and connects to a PC using a USB port, and works with OpenBook Software. • OpenBook software takes an exact picture of the material, whether it be a book, a newspaper, or a magazine, using the Pearl Portable Reading Solution. It mirrors the image using the Pearl Scanner and reads aloud word for word. OpenBook will adjust the speed and tone of the reader, as well as the size, fonts, and color of the text to make your reading experience more comfortable. Additionally, we provide: • Magic Large Print Keyboard, with much larger keys than a standard keyboard. • JAWS (Job Access With Speech) software, which is a screen reader for Windows that works with most computer applications. • Magic Zoom, which magnifies the screen so you can zoom in to the desired screen size. Each innovative tool comes with its very own braille instructions, which are available to patrons upon request.

The majority of jobs require that an individual be able to use a computer. Through our Technology Evaluation and Training Program, people who are vision impaired are trained on the latest technology available, enabling them to participate in academic, employment and independent-living environments. Ongoing advancements in assistive technology such as screen readers provide speech output for computer access and closed circuit televisions (CCTV’s) allowing printed materials to be enlarged, creating opportunities for the vision impaired. These individuals are able to pursue careers and live independently. Forty percent of individuals with vision impairments who are employed are now able to use computers on the job. Through this training, blindness is no longer an obstacle in achieving career goals.
