The Anchorage Public Library is designed to meet the needs of all of our patrons and has many resources to help patrons read/listen to a book. Additionally, any librarian can assist in retrieving a book or using a resource.
All library locations are wheelchair accessible with marked parking, ramps, elevators, and public restrooms. At Loussac Library, a three-wheeled battery powered scooter is available for check-out from the Security Office on Level 2 by Youth Services. The new entrance is much more accessible to wheelchair-users. Handicapped parking is available in the parking lot off Denali Street.
