According to the Mission Statement of the Sewickley Public Library of the Quaker Valley School District, the library strives to provide: “…free access to informational, educational, cultural and recreational library resources that address the interests and needs of the children and adults in the greater Quaker Valley community.” The Library recognizes that patrons of different abilities deserve access to the resources that we provide. On this page you will find a list of resources that offer increased accessibility to our resources for our special needs patrons.
Accessibility Options that are offered by the Sewickley Public Library – Software on our PCs
JAWS screen reader (on the Desktop) – this program enables individuals who are blind or visually impaired to access the information on a computer screen through voice output.
Magnifier (in the Ease of Access folder under the Start Menu) – Magnifier enlarges different parts of the screen. This is especially useful for viewing objects that are difficult to see, but also for seeing the whole screen more easily.
