It’s important to us that everyone, regardless of ability, can use the resources we have available at the library. We have made the accommodations below and have taken care in making sure our website is accessible as well. If you have an accessibility request or recommendation, please contact us and let us know!

handicap parking spaces

Handicap Parking

The Chester County Library has 2 handicap parking spaces right in front of our library entryways.

shelf of books with bottom shelf empty


For our bookshelves in the young adult and adult fiction section, we do not use the very bottom shelf to make it easier for individuals in a wheelchair, walker, or with a disability to utilize our library. If you need help obtaining your books, please let our staff know.

Wide spaces between shelves of books

Spacious Stacks

We keep the space between our library stacks spacious enough so there’s ample access for wheelchairs. 

lots of space between stacks and desks

Spacious Walkways

Ample walkways are crucial for both accessibility and safety in the case of an emergency, so we have wide spaces between desks and stacks as well.

computer stations divided by plexiglass

Low Checkout Counter

One end of our checkout counter is low to accommodate individuals who use a wheelchair.

wheelchair accessible desk

Wheelchair Accessibility

The Chester County Library has a wheelchair-accessible computer station. We also have laptops that can be checked out and utilized at our tables within the library.

screen magnifier in front of computer

Screen Magnifier

We have a screen magnifier that can help the visually impaired better see our computer monitors. To utilize this item, ask a front desk staff member.

computer stations divided by plexiglass

Plexiglass Dividers

We want our patrons to feel safe in our library so we’ve taken the necessary precautions to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by adding plexiglass dividers between computer stations.

accessibility features in restroom

Handicap Stalls

Yep, we did it – a picture of a toilet. We want you to know, however, that we do have a handicap stall in both our men’s and women’s restrooms. The hallway to both restrooms is spacious and it is easy to maneuver into each handicap-accessible bathroom.

diaper changing station

Diaper Changing Stations

Diaper changing stations are available in both the women’s and men’s restrooms.
