Services for Those With Special Needs

Accommodations

If you are in need of accommodations to take advantage of programs or services offered at any Daniel Boone Regional Library building or bookmobile, please contact our ADA coordinator Melanie Henry at (573) 817-7016 or 1-800-324-4806 and she will make the necessary arrangements for you.

In the case of programs, we ask that you make an effort to give us as much advance notice as possible. Accommodations might include such things as having a sign language interpreter at a program or having an assisted listening device available. The Daniel Boone Regional Library is an equal opportunity employer, and is committed to social, ethnic and cultural diversity, and the goals of the Americans with Disabilities Act. (DBRL policy)

Adaptive Equipment

The Columbia Public Library houses a variety of adaptive equipment like a wheelchair, rolling walker, a TTY phone, a magnified computer and a CCTV. Ask at the Information Desk.

Library Materials for Those With Visual or Other Disabilities

Many patrons with visual impairment enjoy checking out audiobooks and some are able to read books from DBRL's large print collection.

For even greater access to library materials for those with disabilities, library staff can help you get free services through the Wolfner Talking Book and Braille Library (a branch of the Missouri State Library). The Wolfner Library offers more than 360,000 volumes of books and magazines in non-print formats (braille and cassette) and everything is mailed to and from your house free of charge. Contact Outreach Department staff for more information.
