Enfield Libraries are committed to making its services accessible to all. We have a range of resources for children with special needs.
Hearing loops are in place in all of our libraries.
We provide a range of large print and spoken words books throughout our libraries. We also offer free customisable e-books, e-audiobooks, and e-magazines in our 24 Hour Virtual Library.
All our computers run Windows 10, which has Ease of Access options in the settings. This allows you to enable a screen reader and adapt the screen to meet your needs.
Eye Pal Solo machines are available at Enfield Town Library, Edmonton Green Library, and Ordnance Unity Centre Library. These machines read typed text such as official documents and newspaper articles.
All of our libraries, expect for Bowes Road Library, are fully accessible. For more information about accessibility, contact your local library. For more details on the full range of services, go to DisabledGo.
