"Communication Support Board" was created

The Mie prefectural library created a "Communication Support Board" so that people with disabilities and foreigners can easily use the library. By using this, you can indicate with the touch of a finger how you would like to use the library.

The "Communication support board" is written in English, Portuguese, Spanish and Chinese, in addition to pictures and Japanese. By all means, please take advantage of the Prefectural Library.
