We are committed to providing equal access to all library materials and services. Our policy is to provide, whenever possible, universal access that enables all library users  to work independently. Persons with disabilities are encouraged to take advantage of our services and to make individualized arrangements with the library for assistance with their independent research or for participating in any of our events and programs.
