Access for Patrons with Disabilities

Mission Statement

The Gingrich Library is sensitive to the needs of patrons with disabilities, however the Library is an older building that is not easily accessible to people with special physical needs. In an effort to make visits to the library as pleasant and productive as possible, given the limitations of our older facilities, we have established guidelines to insure that all of our patrons have sufficient access to our materials and services.


  1. To ensure that access to materials and appropriate services is readily available for our students, faculty, staff and visiting patrons.
  2. To ensure that these services are provided in a friendly manner and reasonable time frame.
Service Priorities
  1. Helping students and faculty use our materials and services.
  2. Helping staff use our materials and services.
  3. Helping Library Society and visiting patrons use our materials and services.
