Libraries play a fundamental role in removing barriers to accessing information, supporting literacy, and offering opportunities for learning and connection. The Accessible Libraries website was developed by the Public Library Accessibility Resource Centre (PLARC) as a support for libraries while they do the important work of nurturing accessible spaces in their communities.
Within this website, you will find carefully curated resources created by and for Canadian public and academic libraries with the goal of sharing ideas, information, and best practices about accessibility initiatives. The resources reflect insight gained from those with lived experiences of a disability. Improvements to accessibility make life easier for everyone.
