Accessibility Statement

We are committed to ensuring that all library facilities, including our website  are accessible to all visitors.

This website has been developed to comply with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended.  Section 508 was enacted to eliminate barriers to information technology for people with disabilities by requiring government agencies to provide comparable information and data to individuals with or without disabilities.

Images on the website include alternative descriptive text to aid users who use screen reading software.

While the majority of the website’s content is published as Hypertext Markup Language (HTML), some content is published in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF).  For more information on using PDF files with screen readers, please visit the Adobe Accessibility Resource Center.

Tutorials posted on the library's website which link to the library's YouTube Channel include closed captioning, and are accompanied on the website with a transcript.

The site is regularly monitored to ensure that it meets and exceeds the requirements of Section 508.
