Libraries for All


The Augmentative Communication Service (ACS) at TVCC and the London Public Library are excited to share a new opportunity called Libraries for All.

Libraries for All enhances access to the library for individuals who cannot talk or have speech that is difficult to understand. This may include people:

  • who have been born with a communication disability
  • who might have had a stroke or car accident
  • who are learning English as a second language

Communication boards are available at all London Public Library locations. Each board contains messages related to a library visit. There are four boards available, including:

The communication boards are stored at the library’s help or circulation desk. These boards can be requested by presenting a Libraries for All bookmark or by pointing to one of the Libraries for All signs. All London Public Library staff is trained on how to use the boards and how to communicate with people who use Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC).
The boards are also available to print from the London Public Library website under "Assistive Service and Adaptive Technology" at the bottom of the home page.

The Libraries for All project was adapted from the Communication Resource Centre (Scope) in Australia.
