Serving kids and teens with disabilities in the library
With the help of our Child and Teen Library Accessibility Interest Group, we’ve assembled resources to support the work libraries are doing to ensuring accessibility for all their users, including those with print disabilities. These links have been carefully chosen to represent accessibility information from credible sources and positively reflect services for people with varying disabilities. Our hope is that you will be inspired by the content in these links, where you’ll find accessibility tips, collection suggestions, communication approaches and programming ideas.
