Yes, the library is accessible to patrons with mobility challenges. We have taken several measures to ensure accessibility within our facilities:
Single-Story Facilities: All library buildings are designed as single-story structures, eliminating the need for stairs or elevators, which facilitates easy access for individuals with mobility challenges.
ADA Compliance: Our library facilities meet the requirements outlined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). These standards encompass various accessibility features such as ramps, accessible entrances, wide doorways, and appropriate signage to aid navigation.
Automatic Doors: To further support our patrons with mobility challenges, all of our entrances are equipped with automatic doors. This feature allows for easy, hands-free access, reducing potential physical strain for those who may have difficulties with manual doors.
Restroom Accessibility: The library restrooms are designed to meet ADA guidelines, ensuring that they are accessible and equipped with appropriate accommodations for patrons with mobility challenges.
Circulation Counters: Considerations for patrons with mobility challenges were taken into account during the construction of our library facilities. Our circulation counters are designed with reduced counter heights, allowing easier access and interaction for individuals using mobility aids. If you require more specific details about our counter design, please don’t hesitate to contact our library staff for further information.
We are committed to providing an inclusive and accessible environment for all patrons. If you have any specific concerns or requirements related to accessibility, please reach out to our staff, and we will be more than happy to assist you.
