A free event in Huntingdon Library will offer visually impaired people the chance to discover what help and support is available to them.

Cambridgeshire County Council's library service and Huntingdonshire Society for the Blind are jointly hosting a free event on Wednesday 11 June, 10am-12pm. It's a chance for anyone who has difficulty reading to ask questions, try out equipment and find out what the library can provide to help them.

At the event there will also be representatives from Cambridgeshire County Council's Sensory Services, RNIB, Optima and The Macular Society. There will also be information available from British Wireless for the Blind, Living Paintings and Calibre Talking Book Service.

Cambridgeshire County Council's Head of Community and Cultural Services, Christine May, said "This is one of a number of free events that we run regularly throughout libraries to demonstrate the wide range of services available for the whole community. Visually impaired residents will find a range of services and help within their library "“ for example our audio book service which is very popular."
