Libraries for People with Handicaps: A Directory of Public Library Resources and Services in Ohio. Second edition.
Ohio State Library, Columbus.
This second edition of the directory contains information collected from 249 public libraries for use by the handicapped, i.e., blind, physically disabled, aged, shut-in, and institutionalized persons. Several changes in format have been made in response to users' reactions to the first edition. For quick reference to library services, materials and accessibility, there are charts which list the libraries by town or city within their respective county. For more detailed information, each library is listed alphabetically by city or community name with the following data: name of the library, person to contact, listing of services, materials available, and ease of accessibility to both the main and branch libraries. Barriers considered are exterior and interior steps, width of doors, water fountains, public telephones, non-slip floors, rest rooms, and parking. (JAB)
