DC Public Library Accommodation Statement

The DC Public Library encourages persons with disabilities to participate in our programs, services and Board of Trustees meetings. 

If you have questions about physical access, need handouts in alternate format or require American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation or other reasonable accommodation to participate, please contact Rachel Meit, Manager, Adaptive Services, by email: 
lbph.dcpl@dc.gov or phone: 202-727-2142, or Janice Rosen, Deaf Services Librarian, by videophone: 202-559-5368.

Adaptive Services is open Monday to Tuesday, 9:30 p.m. to 9 p.m; and Wednesday to Saturday, 9:30 a.m to 5:30 p.m.

Please request accommodation as early as possible, but at least seven (7) days in advance of the meeting, so that proper arrangements may be made. If you have requested ASL interpretation or other accommodation and find you cannot attend, please contact us promptly to cancel your request.
