Accessibility

The Ottawa Public Library (OPL) is dedicated to making its resources accessible to people with disabilities, specifically through its services and collections, including: Homebound Services, the Talking Book Service, assistive technology, and accessible collections.

If you require longer borrowing periods due to a disability, consider applying for Accessibility Status to have your borrowing periods extended. If you would like to request an accessible format or a communication support from OPL, please complete the Accessible formats and communication support form.

OPL complies with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA) and will provide reasonable accommodations upon request.

If you have questions or need assistance, please contact Accessibility Services at accessibility.office@BiblioOttawaLibrary.ca or 613-580-2424 ext. 28321.
