Louise Folsom Memorial Library (Amistad Room) News

The Louise Folsom Memorial Library over-haul is complete now, with lots more breathing room and a fresh, colorful system that makes browsing for books easy and engaging. Some new sections have been created that might be of particular interest…Devotionals; For Women; Biblical Scholarship; Essays; Parry Lecturers; on and on! Pop in and take a look (and check out a book!)

Did you know we now have an on-line catalog? From the Plymouth website, follow the Connections tab to the LibraryThing link. You can browse from home to see what the library has; the “tag” field will tell you in what physical section of the library you will find the book. This is a work in progress, with about 200 books entered so far (www.librarythingplymouthuccfw.com/catalog/).      

If you’re looking for some suggestions for light summer reads, try The Cloister Walk by Kathleen Norris, A Stone for a Pillow by Madeleine L’Engle; or Help, Thanks, Wow: the Three Essential Prayers by Anne Lamott , or perhaps a daily devotional to keep your spiritual practice going while enjoying your summer vacation!

NEW HEARING ASSISTANCE SYSTEM AT PLYMOUTH 

Plymouth recently installed a hearing loop system in the sanctuary and the Folsom Room.

A hearing loop helps persons who use hearing aids that are equipped with T-coils hear sounds from a PA system directly and clearly in the hearing aids, because it reduces or cuts out background noise. It provides a magnetic, wireless signal that is picked up by the hearing aid when it is set to ‘T’ (Telecoil) setting. The system consists of a microphone to pick up the spoken word; an amplifier which processes the signal which is then sent through the final piece; the loop cable, a wire placed around the perimeter of a room or sanctuary to act as an antenna that radiates the magnetic signal to the hearing aid. 

By selecting the ‘T’ setting, a hearing aid user can pick up the sounds spoken into the PA system’s microphone instead of the hearing aid’s internal microphone. This results in improved speech understanding because the listener receives a clear signal without any background noise.

For more information, please contact John Escosa or Lucy Hess.
