We believe that everyone belongs at the Library, and we are working hard to expand our services to to all patrons, regardless of impairment or disability. Everyone deserves the chance to enjoy all the wonderful items available at the library. Join us as we continue to improve our programming to welcome and embrace our patrons who need a little more from us.
Physical Limitations are Not a Limitation at the Library
Our library is big, bright, and open. Not just ADA-compliant, we are truly a space that all patrons can move about in comfortably. We have wide aisles, large community spaces, and nearly all desks and tables are wheelchair-accessible. Our elevator is easily accessed, as are our restroom facilities. Additionally, we have a wheelchair and electric scooter available for those who need extra help getting around. But most importantly, our staff is here to offer assistance to any and all patrons who would like to enjoy the offerings at their library.
For those patrons who are simply unable to visit us at the Library, we bring the Library to them! Our Homebound Delivery Service brings books and other media to patrons who are confined to their homes, and we also can assist in enrollment in the Colorado Talking Books Program for patrons who are physically unable to hold books. There are no overdue fines with this program, and it's easy to enroll. To enroll or to volunteer as a driver for this program, simply contact Debbie by email, by calling 303-651-8795 or by signing up online here.
The Library provides a video-phone for its deaf and hard-of-hearing patrons. This is a free service, available in the Adult Computer Lab on the 1st Floor. Patrons can use it to communicate via sign language, either directly with another signer or through an interpreter. Please ask a Lab Librarian for assistance, and we'll be happy to help you.
Our blind and visually-impaired patrons can also enjoy some special library services. We have a terrific selection of audiobooks and eAudiobooks -- just click or tap on the buttons below to start browsing. We also offer a Reading Machine that magnifies text to various sizes for comfort. Visit our Reading Machine on the 2nd Floor, next to the Adult Reference Desk, or simply ask a Reference Desk Librarian for help.
Have a child with special needs? We have a whole page devoted to Library services specially designed to be inclusive of children who need special considerations in order to fully enjoy their Library.
Everyone Belongs at the Library!
