Additional needs services

We want to make sure all our staff and students on placement receive relevant support and advice from library staff.

Whether you have a physical disability or health condition, a learning difficulty or mental health condition – even if you don’t consider yourself to be disabled – the library will be able to help with book fetching, extended loans and assistance in our libraries such as providing colour overlays and reading rulers to help our members with visual impairments.

You can indicate on the online registration form that you require additional assistance or speak to a member of library staff who will be pleased to help.
