Join us for an overview of 10 things that you can do right now to make your library
more accessible and inclusive for people with disabilities. While many of the
renovations and physical changes required to create accessible spaces are expensive,
there are also many inexpensive ways to modify spaces and attitudes that can make
a real difference for many people. We will explore both physical and virtual
accessibility, from Word documents to physical accessibility audits. The session will
be useful for libraries of any size and on any budget, and, if time permits, will
include brief demonstrations of how people with print disabilities can use different
pieces of technology to read library books.
