The main building of Wojewódzka i Miejska Biblioteka Publiczna im. Zbigniewa Herberta w Gorzowie Wielkopolskim
Sikorskiego 107, 66-400 Gorzów Wielkopolski
Main Library and Historic Villa
There is one entrance to the main building from Kosynierów Gdyńskich. The main entrance to the building is free of architectural barriers. The corridor and hall enable communication and free movement of the disabled. The main library has two panoramic lifts that allow people in wheelchairs to move freely around all spaces. Toilets adapted for people with disabilities are located at:
on the ground floor where they function (Informatory, Main Lending Room, Integration and Activity Department, Children's Department),
1st floor where they operate (Scientific Lending Room, Audiovisual Collections Department),
2nd floor where they function (Reading Room of Magazines and Books, Department of Regional Collections, Information and Bibliography Department, Administration).
You can get to the historic villa where the Special Collections Department is located through the connector. A lift is installed in the connector, which allows a person in a wheelchair to get to the ground floor of the building, the first floor and the second floor are inaccessible to a person in a wheelchair. Modifications due to its historic nature and reconstruction of the building are very difficult and often impossible to perform.
Sign language video interpreter
Deaf people can use the video interpreter service. The stand with the Video Interpreter service is located on the ground floor of the main building at the Informatorium and can be used from Monday to Friday from 10:00 to 18:00. The stand is marked with special graphics. The Video Interpreter service consists in connecting online with a sign language interpreter. The interpreter visible on the computer screen will act as an intermediary in the conversation between the person using sign language and the Library employee. A person who wants to use the Video Translator does not have to make an appointment in advance to use the service. All you need to do is inform the employee about the need to use this form of contact.
In front of the main building of the library there is a car park with a separate space for the disabled. In the building, apart from the elevator, there are no markings to help the blind and visually impaired people move around the facility, e.g. information boards in Braille, an audio information system and surfaces, tactile paths to facilitate movement inside and outside the building. A blind person can enter the building with an assistance dog.
At the main entrance to the library there is a drop box for 24/7 self-return of borrowed library materials (books, CD/DVD collections).
The library lacks dedicated software and peripheral devices enabling blind readers to independently use the collections and services. Specialized equipment for the disabled (in the Center for Integration and Activity, ground floor, room no. 2):
In the lending library, readers have access to:
a computer station for the visually impaired with access to the electronic catalog and the Internet,
Auto-Lektor - there are two devices for reading printed text in a synthetic voice,
PLEXTALK - recorders with the ability to create DAISY 2.02 audio books and music CDs,
6 Readers - devices for listening to a digital spoken book.
The Center also has two Braille printers, 2 Braille monitors/lines, but at the moment we do not have the appropriate software to use these devices.
