Assistive Services

Akron-Summit County Public library and its 17 branch locations provides a variety of accessible services for people with disabilities.

Vision Assistance

Large-print and Audiobooks

Large-print books and audiobooks can be reserved at our online library catalog or call the reference desk at any of our 17 branch locations to find out more. Audiobooks can also be downloaded from the Digital Media section of the library's website.

Homebound Assistance

Library Express Delivery Service (LEDS)

You may have difficulty in getting to the Library on a regular basis. Perhaps you are recuperating from an illness, are homebound, or caring for a family member who isn’t well and can’t get out. If you need us, we can offer you service by mail to you at your home.
