Web Accessibility

SFPL.org and Web Accessibility

The San Francisco Public Library recognizes its obligation under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and other disability civil rights laws to provide equal access to all City and County programs and activities.

The sfpl.org website uses the Web Accessibility Guidelines developed by the City and County of San Francisco in order to help ensure a positive user experience and easier accessibility by maintaining a consistent page layout, information architecture, and navigation structure.

To the extent possible, this site is developed with Web standards in mind. We use proper Hyper-Text Markup Language (HTML) to present information, which makes it possible for assistive technologies such as screen readers to read our content. We use proper headings to separate sections and sub-sections of our site for readability and proper structure.

In addition, SFPL provides an extensive selection of resources in the area of Accessibility Services.
