BC Accessibility Act
In June 2021, the Accessible BC Act became law. The Act provides a framework to identify, remove and prevent barriers to accessibility, including physical, technological, informational, sensory, systemic, and attitudinal barriers.
More information about the Act can be found at https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/governments/about-the-bc-government/accessibility/legislation/accessiblebc
To facilitate the work of the Accessible BC Act, the Mackenzie Public Library has joined with the District of Mackenzie.

Accessibility is one of our key values at the library. We strive to reduce barriers to service for all of our residents.
Some of our accessibility features include:
- Handicapped parking spaces
- Automatic doors
- A low, wheelchair accessible information and checkout counter
- Wheelchair accessible computer stations
- Aisles wide enough to accommodate people with mobility issues
- Collections in accessible formats for print-impaired patrons
We are always open to suggestions! Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to help you or your family and friends use the library.
