Accessibility Support

The Arlington Heights Memorial Library has materials and services in place to accommodate library users of all ages. Please contact us if you require any additional accommodations. Assistive aid devices and sensory-friendly tools, like noise-dampening headphones and fidgets, are also available for use in the library or during programs. If you need any assistance during your visit to the library, please notify any staff member or visit any public service desk.   Our Accessibility Support Collection in Kids' World offers print materials, toys, therapeutic and adaptive tools and more for kids, caregivers, and therapists.

Accessibility Support Collection in Kids' World

The library’s new Accessibility Support Collection of print materials, therapeutic toys and tools was made possible by the generous $10,000 donation  from C.I.T.Y. of Support (Children in Therapy and You). This nonprofit organization's mission is to “create a dynamic community, both online and in person, that supports all families navigating the needs of their child in therapy.” 

The partnership’s newest resource features some 350 items and provides an opportunity for families and therapists to try out specialized items before purchasing them. 

The collection is available for check-out for both AHML cardholders and reciprocal borrowers.
