Outreach Services is committed to providing Library services to those patrons who need special accommodations to access Library services. This can include, but is not limited to, those patrons who cannot access the Library due to a physical disability, patrons who have vision or hearing loss, and those patrons who reside in a long-term care or assisted living facility.
Outreach Services staff also assists students in the Library's English as a Second Language (ESL) classes by providing Library tours and coordinating a Conversation Cafe.
