Access for all
The Access for All unit is a small computer suite housing 6 PCs, located on the ground floor of the Central Library, Halifax. The main purpose of the unit is to deliver a safe, comfortable and welcoming environment for people who want to learn more about ICT facilities and take their first steps towards getting online.
If you want to learn more about computers, the Internet and email, then pop into the Access for All unit. There is normally a member of staff on hand to help with any problems and they can set you up on the training programme Learn My Way| and direct you to other helpful guides and resources.
An area of the unit is set aside for people to use their own laptops or devices. If you have a laptop / tablet and want to learn more about how to use it, the Access for All staff can help. One-to-one sessions can be booked, where a member of staff will sit with you and go through some of the basics of using a laptop etc.
The unit also has facilities for people with visual impairments and other disabilities:
- a wheelchair accessible PC bench providing easier access to a PC;
- software to help people with visual impairment use the PCs and access the Internet;
- magnification tools to assist people in reading important documents, completing forms etc.
In addition, the unit also houses the Mental Health Collection. The collection contains a range of books and material concerned with mental health issues and can be borrowed by Calderdale Library members.
