Accessibility Statement and Resources

The library has entry ramps, a main door, and bathrooms that are wheelchair accessible. Most of the library is on a single floor, accessible to all patrons. The lower-level housing the bulk of our research books - built in the 1970s - is not wheelchair or elevator accessible. There is a way in with a ramp in the back of the building through the parking lot, but we understand that is not ideal. Library staff would be happy to assist you in locating and retrieving books of interest to save you the inconvenience, and we encourage the use of our online catalog reservation service by all. The Memorial Room, a display of the college’s history, has a small flight of three stairs to access that might be difficult for some patrons. Please let a library staff member know if there is anything we can do to make your visit to the library more comfortable.
