We strive to facilitate access to information and library services for all patrons, including those with disabilities, by building a collection that represents all parts of our community, and by flexible delivery of materials and experiences (through digital access, virtual programming, indoor/outdoor gatherings on or off site). Our building is in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), with accessible parking for persons with limited mobility available on campus, directly across the street, and a drive-up area for accessible pick-ups and drop-offs. If you need special accommodation, please phone 203-594-5003 or email [email protected].

- Our large print book collection which has 16-18 point font.
- Hundreds of Books on CD to listen to your favorite stories.
- Thousands of eBooks & eAudiobooks that can be read or listened to on your phone, tablet, or computer.

Through a national network of cooperating libraries, NLS administers a free library program for circulating braille and audio materials to eligible borrowers, who are unable to use regular printed material because of visual impairment or a physical disability. The materials and free playback equipment needed to read talking books and magazines are sent to borrowers and returned to libraries by postage-free mail. Eligible borrowers can also access books and periodicals through BARD, the NLS Braille and Audio Reading Download online service. Detailed information about NLS can be found on their website.
