The Public Library Accessibility Resource Centre (PLARC) conducted community initiatives – studies and interviews – to learn about and support your library’s accessibility journey. Check them out below!
Accessible Libraries Studies
The PLARC project, in partnership with eBOUND, conducted studies that asked both persons with lived experience of a disability and library staff how we can best support their accessibility needs. The themes and key areas in the studies informed the resources provided by the Accessible Libraries website.

We have interviewed libraries and organizations with accessibility initiatives across Canada to celebrate and promote their efforts! Read about their accessibility journeys below:
