BCPL is ADA-compliant, but we are committed to achieving a higher standard of accessibility. We work to provide space, programs, collections, and services to all community members. If you need accommodations that are not listed, or if you have questions, please contact us.
Please note: the device that allows our front door to open automatically is currently broken, and the doors need to be replaced entirely. We have not been offered a firm date on when this will be resolved, but we hope it will be soon. We understand that this is a major issue and that it makes our space inaccessible, and we apologize for any issues this may cause. If you need assistance accessing the building when you arrive, for whatever reason, please contact us and we’ll be happy to help however we can.
Accessibility in the Building

All of our bathrooms are ADA compliant. There are four gendered bathrooms in the building; there are two on the first floor in the rotunda and two upstairs on the second floor.
