Accessibility of library premises and services

The aim of the OUAS Library is to offer customers accessible services and websites as well as accessible library premises. Let us know if you have come across with any difficulties in our services – you can also suggest how to remove them. Customers with reduced mobility can get help from the Library staff with all matters related to library usage. You can book an appointment for introduction to library premises and services; please book in advance from library customer service

Accessible books

If you have difficulties in reading ordinary books due to, for example dyslexia or illness, Celia Library online services are available via OUAS Library. Read more here >>
