Lions Club and Pima County Library offer free readers

TUCSON- As we get older those words on the page can get a little harder to read and reading glasses aren't cheap.

The Lions Club and The Pima County Library have teamed up to help folks who come in here see those words a little clearer.

Because of donations from the Lions Club the library offers people who might not have the resources for reading glasses. Currently the glasses are handed out at 17 of 27 libraries in Pima County. They're stylish and there are various strengths. The library is hoping to better connect with its patrons.

"Maybe they come up to the desk and ask for a pair or perhaps some of our library staff might see somebody struggling a little bit reading and we can offer them a pair. But, they don't have to return them, they can take them home. They're theirs for keeps," said Kenya Johnson, spokeswoman for the Pima County Library.

The program is in need of donations. If you have an extra pair or two laying around the house you can drop them off at Main Library, Oro Valley Public Library, Joyner Green Valley Library or the Kirk Bear Canyon Library.
