A print disability is a learning, physical, or visual disability that prevents a person from reading conventional print. Our accessible collections include:
RPL is a member library with the Centre for Equitable Library Access (CELA). CELA offers books, magazines and newspapers in various accessible formats for customers with print disabilities.
Customers can choose to receive materials from CELA directly, in the mail or electronically on their computers, devices or personal DAISY players.
Eligible RPL cardholders can self-register online or can call the Home Services department at 604-231-6406 to register for CELA.
DAISY and MP3 format audiobook discs may be borrowed in person at Brighouse Branch. Contact Home Services to register for access to this collection.
Customers who receive home delivery may receive MP3 and DAISY audiobooks in their monthly delivery.
DAISY players may be borrowed through Home Services for customers to become familiar with the technology before deciding whether to purchase their own player.
DAISY players may be purchased from the CNIB Vancouver office by phoning 604-431-2121 and asking to speak with the assistive technology sales coordinator.
