The Manchester-by-the-Sea Public Library is committed to providing everyone unimpeded access to our resources, programs, and services. We continually seek to increase our website accessibility and usability.

In pursuit of greater accessibility, the Library aspires to AA conformance to W3C’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1.

These guidelines are an industry standard which help Web resources be more accessible to all people, regardless of technology or ability. Also, in keeping with ADA Guidelines, this website has implemented the following:

  • Text Equivalents – images and text are accessible to be modified by size for people who use screen readers and other assistive technologies.
  • Site Structure – appropriate headings are used so people can use the site with assistive technologies.
  • Magnification – screen magnifiers can be used.
  • Color Contrast – color use on the website does not compromise text legibility.

We do our best to ensure the library meets or exceeds all ADA guidelines to the best of our abilities and resources.

If you encounter any accessibility issues when using our website, do not hesitate to contact us or
call 978-526-7711.
