Library Assistance for Color Blindness

If you are someone who is affected by color blindness, new glasses you can borrow from the Mattapoisett Free Public Library might offer you a new visual experience.

Thanks to a generous donation from the Mattapoisett Lions Club, the library now lends a pair of EnChroma glasses, designed for use with a particular type of color vision deficiency known as red-green color blindness. Some users will benefit dramatically right away, while others may take up to two weeks to see results, according to the manufacturer.

Borrowing the glasses is a good way to try them out and see if you might benefit before purchasing your own pair because not everyone with color blindness will benefit.

For more information about EnChroma glasses, visit the company’s website at

For information about borrowing non-traditional materials from the library, visit or stop by during library hours, see the displays, and speak with the staff. Many interesting and fun items are available, which will save you money, including cake pans and cookie cutter sets, fishing poles, an InstantPot, binoculars, and much more. Patrons need to present their adult library card in good standing to borrow library materials.
