To learn about accessibility in the library, watch our short presentation.
All three floors of the NPL building on Park Ave. are accessible through ramps and elevators.
Accessible Internet and Catalogue Stations:
All our computer workstations are wheelchair accessible. Adjustable seating, increased visibility on computer workstations (contrast, font size, etc.) and audio capabilities are provided upon request. In addition, we have one computer station that is equipped with hardware and software that facilitates accessible computer use through screen reading and magnification, as well as educational support.
Accessible self-checkout stations:
Our two self-checkout stations (located at the main entrance) are wheelchair accessible, and allow users to check out materials without assistance from a circulation clerk.

Support Persons + Animals:
We welcome accompanying support persons and service animals. Never met a service dog? The York Region St. John Ambulance provides trained therapy dogs for our Paws n' Tales program.
NPL's free Visiting Library Service delivers books and other library materials to individuals who are unable to visit the library due to an illness, restricted mobility, or a physical or visual disability. For more details contact Kelly Towsley 905-953-5110 Ext. 4700
