Our Goal: Accessibility a Reality
Brockville Public Library (BPL) is included in and adopts The Corporation of the City of Brockville’s Accessibility Plan.
The Brockville Municipal Accessibility Advisory Committee(BMAAC) completes an accessibility audit of the Library facility on a regular basis.
All Library Board members, staff and volunteers are fully trained to be compliant with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA).
Most of the documents publicly available through our website are in PDF. Please ask us and we will provide information in an alternative format or with communication supports, given availability.
Adaptive technology is any piece of equipment that facilitates ease of use and access to information as well as maximizes independence. We have a number of products, software and hardware, designed for enhanced access to our many services and collections.
