In our branches

All of our libraries have:

  • Wheelchair accessiblity except for the upstairs and restrooms at Woodland Community Library, which we are currently working to replace.
  • Low vision toolkits for patron use, which include a magnifier for reading, a magnifying sheet, reading glasses, and these low vision items: note-writing frame, signature guide, writing tablet, and marker.

All of our public internet computers have this software:

  • JAWS: a screen reader (you'll need to use headphones)
