Photo of Chancey FleetAfter visiting the New York Public Library’s Andrew Heiskell Braille and Talking Book Library in the 1990s, Fleet, now a resident of New York City, returned to the library nearly twenty years later to launch a free computer support clinic. In 2014, she joined the library staff, and the core tech education program now serves 50 to 55 patrons for about 130 hours a month of one-on-one coaching by staff and volunteers, five to six days a week. She is currently at work “jump-starting the conversation around tactile literacy” and spatial learning at the library with Dimensions, an initiative for patrons to create and use accessible graphics with a 3-D printer, tactile graphics embosser, and tactile graphic software.
