first_imgIMCPLFor many people, reading is a daily activity that provides a brief escape and the chance to relax and forget about daily stresses. Reading can be fun, informative, and even cathartic. Unfortunately, for individuals with certain disabilities, reading does not serve as a means of escape and relaxation; conversely, reading can be an arduous task that is frustrating or even impossible.The Indianapolis Marion County Public Library (IMCPL) has a solution that may allow these individuals to enjoy reading by listening to stories through a wide selection of downloadable audio books. The eCollection from the IMCPL is an extensive resource of both audiobooks and ebooks, available for download on the IMPCL website.The library of audiobooks is a great solution for individuals who have dexterity and mobility hindrances, for whom traditional reading practices may be extremely difficult. These individuals may not be able to hold a book or turn the pages. Additionally, the downloadable audiobooks are great for individuals who are blind or have low vision and cannot see the words on the page and may not know how to or may not want to read Braille.The MP3 and WMA format audiobooks are available through OverDrive,  a leading full-service digital distributor of eBooks, audiobooks, and other digital content. OverDrive delivers download fulfillment services for publishers, libraries, schools, and retailers. This technology allows audiobooks to be offered free of charge, available for loan like traditional library books.Unlike library books, the audiobook is automatically returned after the specified loan period; nothing needs to be physically returned to the library. Many devices are compatible with the OverDrive software, including the  Mac operating system, Windows operating system, the Apple iPad, iPod touch, and iPhone, Blackberry, Android, Windows Mobile devices, and many more.Downloadable audiobooks are an excellent, cost effective, and simple solution to allow those with a disability the opportunity to enjoy literature regardless of their ability to see the words on the page or hold a book in their hands.To learn more about the library’s loan policy or to view the books available for loan, visit the IMCPL audiobook webpage.Share this…TwitterFacebookPinterestLinkedInEmailPrint RelatedGizmo’s Freeware:List of Free Online Audio BooksApril 26, 2011In “Services”Assistive Services at Indianapolis Marion County Public LibraryOctober 13, 2010In “Services”Indiana Assistive Technology ConferenceFebruary 18, 2010In “Conferences and Events”last_img

Pioneer Field Agronomy Update 5/22/14  SHARE SHARE Hoosier Ag Today meteorologist Rob Wasson sees picture perfect weather expected over the weekend with sunny skies and seasonal temps, “Daytime highs will average in the middle 70s on Saturday and in the upper 70s by Sunday.  As we move into next week, farmers can look forward to partly cloudy skies on Monday and Tuesday.” He added the extended two week forecast calls for seasonal temperatures and rainfall statewide. Facebook Twitter She said soybean emergence is going well in the northern areas, but heavy rains this week in the central and southern areas may be a different story, “Soybean emergence has been good with very little ponding and soil crusting in northern areas but in areas with heavy rains this may be a problem.” Parts of Central and Southern Indiana saw hail and 2 inch plus rain totals this week. Gums says growers have about another week to get the crop planted before they should consider switching to a shorter season variety. Facebook Twitter Mary GumzThis weekend should bring warm and sunny conditions to the Hoosier State, just what our corn and soybean crops need.  After a May freeze and 2 plus inches of rain, the Indiana corn and soybean crop may finally get some good growing weather.  Mary Gums, agronomist with DuPont Pioneer, says the young crop is showing signs of stress, “I have seen some signs of frost damage, but these crops will recover since the growing point is still below ground.”  Gums expects to see significant crop condition improvement this weekend, “We have plenty of soil moisture; and, once we get the temperature up a little bit, the plants will start growing more actively. We begin to get more root development and it taps into that fertilizer band; we are going to see the crop take off.” Home News Feed Pioneer Field Agronomy Update 5/22/14 By Gary Truitt – May 22, 2014 Previous articleWarm Weather, Just What is NeededNext articleFair Oaks Breaks Ground on Pork Education Center Gary Truittlast_img
