The IFLA Libraries Serving Persons with Print Disabilities Section, in cooperation with the National Library of the Netherlands (KB), is organising a two-day satellite meeting in Schiedam, The Netherlands.

Public libraries play an important role in providing services to their communities, including persons with print disabilities. We share how libraries can be an accessible and inclusive place for all users; how can libraries serving persons with print disabilities (LPDs) and other libraries collaborate; and how can LPDs support public libraries in their work.

We try to highlight the positive work and good practices, in both physical and digital environments. Worldwide, books and services are becoming more accessible, and the European Accessibility Act will ensure this trend continues. What steps are needed to make collections and services discoverable and accessible, and are we making library activities and programs inclusive for persons with print disabilities? Let’s present ideas and experiences as we work together and library for all.
