All of our libraries are disability-friendly, and we have a number of ways to help people who need extra support.

  • We have Hearing Induction Loops for the hard of hearing, and Sign Solutions technology for British Sign Language users.
  • Our Boardmaker computer software contains thousands of pictures and symbols that can be used by adults and children who need extra help communicating, including those with Autistic Spectrum Disorders, Specific Language Impairment, people with memory issues, or older people suffering the effects of stroke or dementia. It also helps people who have English as an additional language.
  • We have tools to make our computers easier to use, such as large screen monitors, adjustable height desks, Big-Key keyboards and trackball mice.
