We’re excited to announce that the MDTAP AT Library just received a complimentary Stress Less Drink Holder!
The Stress Less Drink Holder was made especially for the visually impaired but it is great for anyone who wants to protect beverages from accidentally being knocked over. Created by a retired engineer who is legally blind, his mission is to help others living with vision loss.
If you’d like to schedule a time to see or borrow this or any other device, please contact us at 1-800-832-4827 or firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange your visit.
