Imagine a world in which language and cultural barriers no longer exist – where understanding is universal and everyone is empowered. With the launch of Natrona County Library’s new translation services, they’re getting closer to that reality.
The library recognized that until now, they’ve been unable to adequately meet the needs of the non- or limited-English speaking members of the community, often meaning individuals who are not English proficient were unable to access the full breadth of library services. NCL sought resolutions for this in the past, but they were not sustainable. They believe they’ve finally found a solution: LanguageLine.
LanguageLine is an on-demand service that provides translators and interpreters in 240+ languages — including American Sign Language — allowing Natrona County Library to serve the members of their community at the moment of need, regardless of language, culture, or ability.
