Accessible Books

 

The Library now has several services for patrons with a “print disability” (i.e., severe or total impairment of sight or the inability to focus or move one’s eyes; the inability to hold or manipulate a book; or an impairment relating to comprehension.)

 

 

We offer access to:

  • CELA (The Centre for Equitable Library Access)
  • NNELS (The National Network of Equitable Library Service).

Through these services we can now provide audiobook, ebook and e-Braille downloads, and/or physical CDs to patrons who identify themselves as having a print disability.

We also have 2 special CD players available for loan for registered print-impaired patrons. The Victor Reader plays DAISY and MP3 books and music on CDs, SD cards, and USB flash drives. We also have DAISY audiobook CDs here in the library that are only available for loan for our print-impaired patrons.

Ask at the Reference Desk for more information on these services, and for assistance in using them. We’ll help you or a caregiver get started!
