Gingrich Library Guidelines for Access to People with Disabilities
The Gingrich Library is an older building that may not be easily accessible to people with special physical needs. Staff will gladly assist in retrieving any materials that patrons cannot access. If at any time you need assistance, please ask at the Library Reference Desk or Circulation Desk.
The elevator is generally available Monday-Friday from 8:00 am - 6:00 pm. If you plan to use the facilities at other times, please call the Reference Desk (610-921-7211) or the Circulation Desk (610-921-7517) in advance to be sure that the outside door leading to the elevator and the elevator itself are unlocked and accessible. Library staff will take responsibility for calling the security office to make sure the door is unlocked. The existing elevator measures 45 in. (wide) x 36 in. (deep) x 90 in. (tall)). Because the third floor is a later addition to the building, the elevator does not go to that floor. Staff intervention will be needed to retrieve any materials that patrons cannot access.
In order to best serve you, we ask that you contact the library at 610-921-7211 to insure that the staff and materials you need are available and that the elevator and Internet access are working properly.
