The Library is committed to delivering digital experiences that accommodate all users. The Library’s Web Site, buenavistalibrary.org, serves as a portal to its services and products. We are continually improving the user experience for everyone, and applying the relevant accessibility standards. 
Measures to support accessibility
Buena Vista Public Library takes the following measures to ensure accessibility of Library Web Site: 

  • Integrate accessibility into our procurement practices for digital products.

  • Schedule regular monitoring of our accessibility through quality assurance methods.

Conformance status
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. The current goal for the Library Web Site is to fully conform with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Fully conformant means that the content fully conforms to the accessibility standard without any exceptions.
