Kent District Library in Michigan Launches MagnusCards

Kent District Library was the first library in the United States of America to introduce MagnusCards®, a new initiative to assist patrons with cognitive special needs, such as autism. MagnusCards leverages technology to empower and aid people as they engage in a variety of everyday activities, offering digital “Card Decks” that provide step-by-step instructions to walk the user through a variety of activities. KDL’s customized cards offer five different Card Decks to help individuals check out materials at the library and utilize other services.
