How May We Serve You and Your Students?

Our purpose is to provide intellectual and physical access to materials in all formats; to provide instruction that fosters competence and stimulates interest in reading, viewing, and using information and ideas; and to work with other educators to design learning strategies and opportunities to meet the needs of individual students.
