For People with Disabilities

Qatar National Library is committed to ensuring that all our resources are accessible to everyone. Our main collection includes materials produced for those with disabilities, including large-print books, audiobooks and books in braille.

Our dedicated assistive technology space is specially designed for people with disabilities, with adjustable workstations and the latest equipment and software, such as scanning pens with headphones, ergonomic keyboards and mice, braille keyboards, and portable electronic magnifiers. 

We organize frequent workshops and events for people with disabilities and their families, including a summer camp activity for visually impaired people and workshops on ‘Free Apps for Autism’ and ‘Assistive Technology Devices.’ We host schools for the disabled and partner with local organizations to continue to serve the entire community. As part of our grand opening celebrations, we launched the Book Club for the Blind, an ongoing gathering that encourages those with visual impairments or print disabilities to share their love of reading in a supportive environment.

We are always working to improve our services for all of our users. If you have any suggestions on how we can make the Library’s resources better accessible, please write to us at [email protected]
