Maryland Public Library Services for the Handicapped. A Survey for Handicapped Accessibility to Public Library Facilities.
Maryland State Dept. of Education, Baltimore. Div. of Library Development and Services.
Prepared as a part of an ongoing effort to make Maryland public libraries readily accessible to the handicapped, this directory identifies equipment, services, and facilities available to library users who are confined to wheel chairs and others who have difficulty with steps or stairs. Supplied by the administrators of Maryland's 24 public library systems in response to a questionnaire, each entry indicates whether or not a library facility has (1) special parking, (2) curb cuts and/or ramps, (3) main entrance at grade level or a ramp and a door at least 32 inches wide, (4) thresholds level between areas, and (5) rest rooms equipped with grab bars. The directory is arranged alphabetically by library system and includes the systems' member libraries as alphabetic subdivisions. (RAA)
