NBPLS is committed to making public library services available to all New Brunswickers including people with print disabilities.

Print disability or perceptual disability refers to a condition that prevents people from reading standard print due to severe or total impairment of sight or the inability to focus or move one’s eyes; the inability to hold or manipulate a book; or an impairment relating to comprehension.

All NBPLS libraries provide access to alternative format collections (available at the library and through the NBPLS website). Thirty-six libraries located throughout the province provide access to adaptive workstations. In addition, NBPLS libraries provide access to restricted alternative format collections held by the Centre for Equitable Library Access (CELA) and Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ) through the Service québécois du livre adapté (SQLA).
