Hearing loop installed
A hearing loop is a wire that circles a meeting room or a service desk and is connected to a sound system.
The loop transmits sound electromagnetically to a wireless receiver called a T-coil in the user's hearing aid or cochlear implant.
Within the loop, the microphone from the sound system becomes the microphone to the hearing instrument.
No additional equipment is needed.
Hearing loops help people overcome the listening challenges of distance from the speaker and background noise.
People should direct questions about their hearing aids and T-coils to their audiologist or hearing provider.

The project is supported in part by Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funds, awarded to the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction by the Federal Institute of Museum and Library Services.
The library's recent book sale was its most successful one ever.
