Restrooms: Accessible restrooms are located on the main level (1st floor) and both the men's and women's restrooms have push-button automatic doors.

Access: Library staff will pull materials upon request when the materials are not physically accessible for any reason. For example if materials are too high or too low on a shelf, or if the call numbers are difficult to see. Physical materials may also be requested through the online Library Catalog.

Wheelchair-accessible study carrels and tables are available throughout the library. The main level has a computer station that can be raised to standing height as well as an empty desk that can be raised or lowered.
