The library offers a welcoming space where people with limited mobility or people with a functional disability can benefit from adapted facilities, collections and equipment.
Universal access can take several forms.
- Adapted facilities to facilitate physical access
- Adapted equipment and tools, for example:
- pedal desk for people with attention deficit/hyperactive disorder (ADHD)
- digital magnifying glass and screen magnification software
- reading glasses loaned in certain libraries
- Adapted collections, for example:
- books and society games in braille or large print
- talking books and digital audio books
- films in DVD and Blu-ray with audio-descriptions for people with a visual impairment
- films on DVD and Blu-ray with subtitles for people with a hearing impairment
- Home mailing service that lets people with a disability or people ages 65 and older access the collection without going in person to the library.
The organizations Kéroul and AlterGo offer guides that describe in detail the facilities and services accessible through the library and provide organizations with tools for their visit.
