Physical Access and Parking

  • The library has automated doors at the main entrance. An automated door is also at the entrance near the accessible parking lot at the back of the library for users with approved access. To apply for access, please contact Library Administration (610-436-2747).
  • There are dedicated accessible computer workstations on the 2nd floor of the library. Workstations are labeled with disabled access priority and are equipped with adjustable height tables.
  • Service animals are welcome in the library.
  • In the event of an emergency, library users who require assistance in evacuating the building should wait in or near the closest stairwell for assistance. Campus safety personnel clear the building during an emergency and check the stairwell entrances for library users who require assistance.


If you experience a barrier because of your disability while using library resources or spaces, or if you have any questions, contact Deirdre Childs.
