Web Accessibility Statement

The Detroit Public Library (DPL) is committed to making its digital resources and website content accessible to all visitors, including those with disabilities. DPL is actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of its website by using current standards and guidelines.

The website has been redesigned to comply with level AA of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These guidelines define how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. The DPL website is routinely tested using well-known web accessibility technologies and third-party experts to certify that it continues to stay in compliance.

Some of the items in DPL’s collection, however, pose challenges which require us to explore creative ways to enhance web accessibility.

The Detroit Public Library is constantly pursuing innovative ways to bring all areas of the website up to the same standard. In the meantime, should you experience any difficulty in accessing any of its content, please complete the Web Accessibility Report Form or contact:
