Accessibility Options & Information

A Red and White button with "CELA Partnered Library" along the top. At the bottom it reads: Proudly serving people with print disabilities. Both are written in a deep red font. In the center is the CELA logo. The word CELA is written in black and to the left is a sunburst-like series of lines alternating in light red and dark red lines.

Accessible Collections with CELA

The Markstay-Warren Public Library is proudly partnered with CELA (The Centre for Equitable Library Access). The Centre for Equitable Library Access is Canada’s comprehensive accessible reading service, providing books and other materials to Canadians with print disabilities in the formats of their choice.

What Markstay-Warren Public Library Provides

Through this program, individuals can borrow audiobooks on CD from our collection, or order DAISY audiobooks from CELA. We also have several Victor Readers (A portable audiobook and music streaming device) available for our patrons to borrow.

For those that need a larger font, large print books can be searched for in our collection through our catalogue or by requesting aid from staff. If a book is not available in large print, it can be obtained through interlibrary loan. We also have e-Readers for loan, which are equipped with features to assist with visibility such as brightness and font size.

 

Assistive Technology

All public computers have Windows Accessibility features available for use.


Homebound Services may be available on request.

Staff will assemble a grab bag of items for you to pick up. If you would like different types of items, for example a mix of DVDs and books, let us know. Coming soon, an online form to make your selection.

Interlibrary Loans

 

What is an "Interlibrary Loan"?

An Interlibrary Loan (also known as an ILL) is a resource sharing service between libraries, in which one library can request material from another if it is not in their catalogue.  

How does it work?

If you are looking for a specific book but it isn't in our catalogue you are welcome to place a request with us! Acting as an intermediary, we search for libraries with the book available and place requests. If accepted, the book is then sent to us to be lent out to you! These books have strict due dates and are non-renewable at current time.

I can't find the book I'd like!

 If an item is not available from our catalogue, contact us with your request. 

You can request an item:

o   In person

o   By phone: 705-599-2665/705-599-3009

o   By email: markstaywarrenpl@gmail.com
