FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) - The Northeast Indiana Radio Reading Service, or NEIRRS, provides a 24 hour per day, seven day per week free reading service of current news and information to those who are blind and sight impaired.
Volunteer readers are recorded reading local news and other printed materials and the recorded content is broadcast to people in northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio via a sub-channel radio frequency. Special radio receivers are needed to hear the signal and are available for loan through the NEIRRS program.
This nonprofit program is managed through the Allen County Library Foundation, operated in part by volunteers and funded through donations. If you are interested in volunteering or would like more information about the program, please visit our link to the NEIRRS website, or call 260-421-1376 to speak to the NEIRRS manager.
