"Libraries are more than lenders of books. They are part of society and community. They should stand for inclusivity. They should do this not only by adding ramps and magnifiers but also through welcoming attitudes, support of adaptive technologies of all types, and lobbying for open formats that reward authors without restricting access and forcing disclosure on those who are invisibly disabled. By looking at inclusion through variations in normalcy, we can address methods that provide access for all library users."
