Disability Access and Inclusion: Have Your Say

The Australian Federation of Disability Organisations has been working with Geelong Regional Libraries to develop its new Access and Inclusion Plan.

This Plan is currently in draft form and we’re interested to know to what you think. Does it hit the mark? Are there things that are important that have not been included? What parts of the Plan do you like?

Please find the link to the document here: Standard print version and Large print version. If you require the  Access and Inclusion Plan in another format, such as Braille, please just let us know.

We’d appreciate your feedback (in dot points is more than fine) by Friday 31 August 2018 at 5.00pm to

You can also leave feedback in person at your local library that will be passed on. Please ensure you mention the draft Access and Inclusion Plan when leaving your feedback.
