You are making our libraries accessible to all

The New Brunswick Public Library Service is committed to making public library services available to all New Brunswickers, including people with print disabilities. Our donors allow our libraries to offer materials in alternative formats, such as audiobooks on CD, large print books, and DAISY books.

Our partnership with the Government of Canada and the Province of New Brunswick through the Canada-New Brunswick Labour Market Agreement for Persons with Disabilities has enabled us to provide funding for specialized equipment that makes our library collections more accessible to all. Every library in the province now offers an adaptive workstation that can transform print or text information into an accessible format. The workstations are wheelchair accessible and are loaded with a suite of adaptive software and hardware. Every library in the province also offers DAISY players for loan.

Thanks to this partnership, New Brunswick became the first province in Canada to offer province-wide access to adaptive workstations and DAISY players through its public libraries. The Libraries Foundation is proud of this partnership that has removed a significant barrier for New Brunswickers with print disabilities.
