Department Overview

The Center for Accessibility (C4A) staff work to provide disability-related library programming throughout the year, as well as classes in American Sign Language (ASL) and Assistive Technology. All services are free and open to all. 

C4A also has a growing collection of materials for check-out, including standard print materials around the topic of disability culture and history, and a Children's braille book collection. We also have current issues of braille magazines for adults that may be read on site, including Harper's and The New York Times Book Review.
