Accessibility assessment

Object description

The library is partially accessible. The building is located in the pedestrian zone in the Celje city centre. There are no accessible parking spots or public transport stops nearby. The entrance to the library is not easily recognizable and is inadequately marked. Access is impeded due to the current passage through two vestibules (double door). Part of the ground floor is in a mezzanine, so parts of the library on the ground floor, the basement, and the upper floors are accessible by one of two lifts. The children’s section in the basement is accessible to wheelchair users with a ramp, but it is too steep and does not have side handrails. There is sufficient room to manoeuvre between bookshelves. The stairs do not have contrasting visual markings and handrails. The library features two halls (Levstik Hall in the basement and a projection room/reading room on the third floor) accessible to people with mobility impairments with a small lift that does not meet the size standard. Levstik Hall is equipped with an induction loop and moveable seating. There is an accessible toilet room on the first floor.
