Access at Branch Libraries

Library Access for People with Disabilities

Most Humboldt County Library facilities are accessible to people with a wide range of abilities, but not every one meets all Americans with Disabilities Act standards. For example, all have ramps where necessary, but some of the ramps do not perfectly meet all of today's requirements.  Humboldt County is working on upgrading its branch libraries to comply with all ADA standards. 

In the meantime, we want you to be able to get library books, videos, and services! Please call if you have questions about access and services that will work for you.
