Website & Digital Resource Accessibility

Gunnison County Library District, (“District” or “Library”), a Library District organized under the laws of the State of Colorado, establishes these policies to protect the people of Gunnison County, employees of the Library and to further and fulfill its mission.

Mission: Gunnison County Libraries strengthen our communities, our residents and visitors by creating opportunities to connect, discover, imagine, and learn.

The intent of this policy is to guide the District’s compliance with the requirements of Colorado House Bill 21-1110. “Accessibility” means the perceivable, operable, and understandable digital content that enables an individual with a disability to access the same information, engage in the same interactions, and enjoy the same services offered to other individuals, with the same privacy, independence, and ease of use as exists for individuals without a disability.

The District is committed to making a good faith effort to improving the accessibility of online resources as rapidly as financial and administrative resources allow. The District’s objective is to meet Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 AA by July 1, 2024, and WCAG 2.2 AA by July 1, 2025, as mandated in Colorado House Bill 21-1110. The District also notes the extension of the deadline for digital accessibility compliance for public entities from July 1, 2024, to July 1, 2025, as defined by House Bill 24-1454.

The District will publish and maintain a Digital Resources Accessibility Plan. The Digital Resources Accessibility Plan will guide the Library District toward delivering library users with online resources that meet or exceed “Level AA” conformance criteria outlined in the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 AA. This policy will be reviewed annually on or before June 30th or when changes are required by Colorado Law.

Accessibility issues related to the digital resources provided by the Library may be reported by electronic mail, telephone, or in person.
