Library Access

Assistive Technologies

Public libraries may provide specific computer software, hearing induction loops and other assistive and adaptive technologies for library users who have vision, hearing and learning difficulties.

Library Promotion

Public libraries promote library services through media campaigns, promotional material, library websites and social media, and partnerships with relevant stakeholders.

Library Tours

Public libraries may give tours of library buildings and collections, demonstrations on the use of library equipment, and information on library membership to students and other groups to promote library use.

Library Wheelchairs

Public libraries may provide wheelchairs to help people with mobility issues to get around the library building.

My Open Library Initiative

Public libraries may give library members access to library services on a self service basis during extended opening times to borrow and return books, use the internet and WiFi, and print, photocopy and study.
