Accessibility

Audiobooks

We offer audiobooks in three formats: as CDs, MP3 Playaways, and digital eAudiobooks. Digital eAudiobooks can be downloaded from our digital collection.

Illinois Talking Books

We work closely with Illinois Talking Book Outreach Center to provide library service to our patrons who are unable to read print due to a visual or physical impairment. Accessible materials (digital audio and braille books and magazines) are conveniently mailed to and from our patrons wherever they reside, and the program is tax supported so there is never any out-of-pocket expense for postage or materials.

Digital Books

eBooks allow the reader to resize the text to a more comfortable reading size. You may access eBooks on your computer or on a mobile device. Just visit the app store and download the Hoopla and OverDrive apps. You will need your library card. Search our catalog for eBooks.

Wheelchair

Aside from having accessible parking in front of the Library, we also have a wheelchair available. Just ask at the Front Desk for it.

ADA Compliant

Our building is ADA compliant. Public restrooms are available on the main level of the Library and are wheelchair accessible.

Large Print Books

Large Print Books are located on the Main Level. These books include popular fiction and non-fiction. Digital books’ text size can be changed, so ask at the Adult Services Desk about eBooks.

Sound Amplification

Our Meeting Rooms are wired for sound. Presenters use wireless microphones hooked up to a PA system to make it easier for all to hear.

Magnifiers

Ask at the Adult Services Desk for a magnifying glass to use during your library visit.

Elevator

The elevator located in the center of the Library provides access to the administrative offices on the second floor.

Delivery Services

We offer delivery services for seniors, women experiencing difficult pregnancies, parents who have given birth or adopted a child within the last six weeks, people with a serious illness or physical limitation, and people with a temporary illness or disability. Patrons should call the Adult Reference desk at 630-260-1550, or email djansen@glensidepld.org to sign up for this program.
