For Persons with Disabilities
Persons with disabilities who do not wish to use the stairs can enter the library to
the right of the main entrance. This entrance is accessible via exterior ramps, and there
is a bell outside the door for patrons who need additional assistance. A laptop computer
with Zoomtext is available for patrons who are unable to access the public internet
terminals in the reference room.
The ClearView Video Magnifier System in the reference room magnifies print to help people with
limited vision. It
magnifies anything placed under it up to 50 times its original size, and can
change foreground and background colors.
Available Tuesday and Wednesday evenings between 5 and 8 pm. Call for an
appointment - (831) 624-7323. No “drop-in” test proctoring is available. Student must provide current photo identification, and bring all
necessary supplies, including envelopes and postage if needed.
We will meet the testing institution’s requirements whenever possible, but reserve the
right to refuse proctoring services if the requirements exceed staff or facility
capabilities. The library will not keep copies of test materials.
