Access at Branch Libraries
Library Access for People with Disabilities
Humboldt County Libraries strive to be fully accessible to all. The library wants to welcome everyone. We are committed to this.
All Humboldt County Libraries are accessible to people with a wide range of abilities, but not every library meets each current Americans with Disabilities Act standard. For example, all buildings have ramps, but older ramps at some libraries may not meet all of today's rules about turning radius. As we find problems like this, upgrades are scheduled and performed.
If our building isn't a place you can enter, we still want you to be able to get library books, videos, and services. Curbside service is available at all libraries for those who need it due to a disability or membership in a group that's at high risk with Covid. Please call if you have questions about access and services that will work for you.
