Web Accessibility

Cavan Monaghan Libraries is dedicated to creating spaces and providing services that are accessible to all. This includes creating an accessible website for all of our patrons to use. If you have any suggestions please feel free to contact us with your ideas. So far we have:

  • focused on creating a clean, well structured layout
  • provided text alternative for any non-text content such as photographs
  • used everyday language rather than library jargon
  • used colour contrast and sans-serif text styles to aide readability
  • used skip links for quicker navigation to page content
