Disability and accessibility

The Bibliothèque publique d’information has implemented a certain number of services for disabled visitors. From booths to events that are adapted, and with a specific entrance, the Bpi endeavours to make all of its spaces and collections in the library accessible to you.

Contact the Reading and disability mission

The role of this specific service is to promote accessibility for all to the library. Its purpose is also to inform libraries and create awareness of the question of access for the disabled to reading. Each year this mission organises a study and meeting day on the theme of welcoming disabled visitors in libraries. For several years it has been working in partnership with organisations and libraries applying an active policy in this area.
