Accessibility Aids & Devices


We have adaptive aids and devices available to help make it easier to read print and improve reading accessibility.

Most of our adaptive technology is for use in the library only. For technology on loan, please return it in person to a staff member to avoid accidental damage, not in a drop box or return slot.
