Access Services Special Collections

Audio-Described DVDs

DVDs with “descriptive narration” have been specially enhanced to assist people with visual impairments. During pauses in the dialogue, a narrator describes the scenery, costumes, and actions that appear on the screen. Access Services maintains a small collection of classic, popular, and award-winning films in this format. To request our audio-described DVDs, call us at 703-324-8380 or TTY 703-324-8365. You may also e-mail us.

Braille Awareness Kits

Media selected by Access Services staff will help groups learn about the history and use of Braille. Any Fairfax County Public Library cardholder may reserve a kit.

Nostalgia Kits

Multimedia programming materials from Bi-Folkal Productions, Inc. are designed to be used by groups of older adults and may be borrowed by any Fairfax County Public Library cardholder. To request a kit, call us at 703-324-8380 or TTY 703-324-8365. You may also e-mail us.
