Adelaide City Libraries Access Guides
The Adelaide City Libraries staff have been working with City of Adelaide Access and Inclusion Advisory Panel (AIAP) to ensure that the library is a welcoming and inclusive place for everyone to enjoy. The AIAP is made up of 12 people with experience of disability.
These library access guides are one of the outcomes of this work.
