Accessibility in libraries

Enfield libraries are committed to making its services accessible to all. We have a range of resources for children with special needs.

Auditory impairment

Hearing loops are in place in all of our libraries.

Visual impairment

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 Digital 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.

An Eye-Pal Solo machine is available at Edmonton Green Library. This machine reads typed text such as official documents and newspapers.
