At the Council Bluffs Public Library, we endeavor to provide access to our facilities and services to all members of the community. The following services and assistive technologies are available to improve access for library patrons. If you would like to request additional service, please contact us.

Mobility Impairments

Wheel chairs can be obtained for use at the circulation desk on the first floor. They are subject to availability.

When needed and requested, staff members are available at all service locations to retrieve books and other resources or to perform tasks such as photocopying, lifting heavy books, and retrieving materials from tall shelves.

The library building is designed in accordance with the ADA accessibility guidelines for buildings and facilities. An elevator, adjacent from either service desk, allows access to all public areas of the library.

Hearing Loop

The Library Meeting Room B is equipped with a hearing loop system that interfaces with hearing aids and cochlear implants. The hearing loop is a wire that circles the room and is connected to the sound system. The loop transmits the sound electromagnetically to the telecoil in your hearing aid or cochlear implant.

Ask your audiologist or hearing instrument specialist about connecting to the library’s telecoil system.

Visual Impairments

Assistive technologies are available on both floors of the library to enlarge displays of printed materials. Also, the library has a sizeable collection of large print and audio books located on the first floor.
