Library Services

Accessibility can be defined as whether someone with a disability can access, experience, or interact with something. This can apply to employment, public spaces, transportation, healthcare, technology, housing, education and even libraries. The Library is committed to providing collections, programs, services, and facilities that ensure inclusive and adapted access for all.

Accessible Databases

Some library databases including EBSCO and GALE provide a text to speech or "Listen" option for articles. After locating and opening a document, look for an option to listen or download these audio files in MP3 format.


Both Centerville Library and Woodbourne Library are fully accessible. The Library welcomes more than 12,000 visitors each week, and strives to provide easy access to Library materials and events for all who visit. Anyone needing personalized accommodations should contact the Library in advance.

Collection & Programs

The Library offers foreign language materials via one of the largest collections of books, eBooks and audio-visual materials in Ohio. The Library also hosts fun and educational cultural events and frequently partners with local organizations to present diverse and accessible programs.
