ACCESSIBLE SERVICES

If you can’t get to the library, the Library can come to you!

Accessible Services provides services to seniors and library users with mobility challenges and/or print disabilities who live in the City of New Westminster.

We define a mobility challenge as an illness, injury or disability that prevents a person from visiting the library or carrying library materials.

We hope to hear from you.

PRINT DISABILITY

A print disability is one that prevents or inhibits a person from reading conventional print.

It can be the result of:

  • A learning disability, such as a perceptual impairment
  • A physical disability, such as the inability to hold or manipulate a book
  • A visual disability, such as an impairment of sight or the inability to focus or move one’s eyes

New Westminster Public Library makes every effort to accommodate library users with print disabilities through the provision of specialized services, collections and equipment.

POPULAR SERVICES INCLUDE:

  • Home Delivery
  • CELA (Centre for Equitable Library Access)
  • NNELS (National Network for Equitable Library Service)
  • Access to alternative formats, such as a selection of audiobooks and large print materials
