CELA service is available to any students with print disabilities (visual, physical or learning disabilities) that prevent them from accessing regular print. They can sign up for a free CELA membership (and a free Bookshare membership) by completing the CELA self-registration form on our website. All they need to have is a valid public library card from an Ontario public library in order to participate.
Educators/teachers can also register for CELA’s Educator Access program, which allows them to access CELA’s alternative format collection (both physical & digital formats) for any students with print disabilities. For more information on Educator Access teachers can visit the Educators page of the CELA website.There is an FAQ for the Educator Access program on this page.
