Sno-Isle ADA Committee Meets at Louis Braille School

The ADA Committee of the Sno-Isle Regional Library System met at the Louis Braille School to explore ways the School and the Library can collaborate.The Sno-Isle Regional Library, based in Marysville, includes public libraries in Edmonds, Lynnwood, Brier, and Mill Creek, as well as all libraries north to Arlington and Darrington, and east to Monroe. The Sno-Isle System is primarily in Snohomish County, but it also includes the libraries on Whidbey Island.

The committee members enjoyed a tour of the school and gave a “thumbs up” to the ADA restroom. The ADA Committee expressed interest in and support of the unique academic and life skills program offered by the Louis Braille School.

The Sno-Isle Library has a cooperative association with the Talking Book and Braille Library (WTBBL) in downtown Seattle. Sno-Isle often borrows books for a temporary collection at a local library in the Sno-Isle region for patrons to enjoy. The following is information on special services for visually impaired people at libraries in the Sno-Isle system:

  • Marysville, Lynnwood, and Mill Creek libraries: CCTV (closed circuit TV)
  • Marysville, Monroe, Edmonds, and Oak Harbor libraries: computers with either Zoom- text or JAWS.
  • All of the Sno-Isle libraries: large print books and audio recorded books.
