Website Accessibility

The King County Library System values diverse experiences and perspectives and strives to fully include everyone who engages with KCLS and its technology. KCLS understands that inaccessible information technology can negatively impact people with a variety of disabilities. KCLS is committed to making its website and online services accessible to the widest possible audience, including individuals with disabilities.

We continue to monitor our site and make sure that all content provided, including databases and other external service provider content, is accessible to all visitors. In order to help us in this process, a full accessibility audit consisting of both automated and manual testing of our website has been conducted with specific recommendations that will assist us in ensuring that our Web presence is in conformance with the WCAG 2.0 A/AA. It is important to note that accessibility efforts to the website are ongoing as we work to implement the relevant improvements to meet WCAG 2.0 A/AA guidelines over time.

If you are a person with a disability and have trouble using our website or you use assistive technology (such as a screen reader, eye tracking device, voice recognition software, or other technology) and have difficulty accessing information on our website, please contact Elsa Steele at (425)369-3453 or and provide the URL (web address) of the material you tried to access, the problem you experienced, and your contact information.

Complaints of unsatisfactory provision of accommodation or allegation of action prohibited by ADA law must be filed in writing or by audiotape within 15 days after the alleged violation occurred. Complaints must include the name and address of the person filing it, a brief description of the alleged violation, and any persons involved or witness to the alleged violation. Complaints should be addressed to the Library Access Coordinator, King County Library System at 960 Newport Way NW, Issaquah, WA 98027.
