Handicapped parking and automatic door openers are available at both public entrances. A wheelchair is available for use while visiting the library - ask at the Information Desk. Amplifying headsets are available for patrons who need help hearing presentations in the large meeting room.
Thanks to a generous donation, the Library has purchased a VideoEye LCD PowerZoom machine, a monitor and magnifier that allows magnification of materials up to 65 times. Items may be placed under the magnifier, which can be moved to various positions. There is also a reading platform that allows easy moving of reading materials. This is located in the listening area near the Large Print books.
The Bozeman Lions Club has supplied the Library with a VTEK Voyager machine, a closed circuit television device which magnifies print. A book or any other print material can be placed on a viewing platform and magnified up to 40 times onto a viewing screen similar to a TV screen. People can also write a letter or fill out forms with small print. The device is located upstairs near Computer Services.
As part of the Broadband Opportunites Technologies Program (BTOP) grant through the Montana State Library, the Library received software and equipment to allow visually-impaired and those with dexterity issues to access information. Two accessible stations have Magic magnification software, ZoomText and a ZoomText large-print keyboard. A handheld electronic magnifier can be used to increase the size of any document. A TrackMan Marble mouse, with large trackball and more comfortable shape, is also available. The accessible station on the first floor also has JAWS text-to-speech software installed.
