Registering for CELA service
People with a print disability
Register online for your local public library’s CELA service, or ask for help at your public library.
To be eligible for CELA services you must:
- Live in Canada
- Have a visual, physical or learning disability that prevents you from reading conventional print.
Proof of disability
If you wish to access the Bookshare collection, you must provide a proof of disability, as required by Bookshare's agreements with publishers. CELA manages the proof of disability process and ensures the privacy of your personal information. If you prefer not to submit a proof of disability, you will still have access to the CELA collection.
Register an eligible patron for your library’s CELA service.
Client Access Support Program
The Client access support program is designed for people who will assist privately tutored students, CNIB clients, residents of seniors' residences or long-term care facilities to access CELA's alternate format collection. Visit the Client access support program page for more information.
