Huntley, IL – The Huntley Area Public Library was once again honored to receive a donation from the Huntley Area Lions Club. The donation, a Optelec ClearView desktop video magnifier was presented to the library by Lion Jim Harper and Lion Jim Saletta. It was donated to the Lions Club by an anonymous Sun City resident.

The ClearView magnifier is now available for use inside the library and is located next to the Information Desk. The ClearView can magnify up to 95x in HD, and in color! It is easy to use and is powered on by a single button.

The donation of a magnified vision device adds another chapter to the partnership between the Library and the Lions Club. Additionally, it continues their mission and Helen Keller’s crusade as Knights of the Blind. Helping the visually impaired has been a cause for the Lions Club since 1925.

Huntley Area Public Library Head of Marketing Doug Cataldo said, “The library is always looking for new ways to assist residents and patrons with visual impairments and low vision. In addition to the donation, we continue to evaluate ADA needs, and the Lions Club has always been there with their support  providing easy to use, worthwhile tools to the library for the community. We thank them for this device, and their efforts and partnership.”
