Access for people with disabilities
There are two parking spaces for people with disabilities at the Castle Gates entrance. Please book a space in advance using the form below.
Inside, all public areas, including the toilets, are accessible to wheelchairs. A hearing loop is installed.
We have a ‘clear star viewer’ which uses CCTV technology to enlarge pages from printed books for you. We also have a hand-held video magnifier, which you can use with documents and maps in our Search Room.
Our free guides to sources can all be printed in large text – please ask staff for details.
If you visit in the morning 10am-1pm, members of the Shropshire Family History Society provide a help desk. The person on duty can give you help, for example with carrying items or reading information for you. In some instances, we can also arrange one-to-one orientation tours to help on your first visit. Please contact us in advance about this, or if you want to discuss anything else before you visit.
