Services to People with Disabilites

Serving People with Disabilities by Mail
Circulation Procedures

The Foundation Center has developed a program intended to assist individuals with ADA-recognized disabilities who would otherwise be unable to access our library's resources.

We have put together a small circulating collection consisting of selected directories and information sources for those seeking grants or scholarships. The collection focuses on resources for nonprofit organizations in the disabilities field, but also contains selected titles for individuals with disabilities. Also included are several books on jobseeking and starting a home business. A list of books in the circulating collection is available here. The library will also continue its long-standing policy of lending any print titles published by the Center to users who are unable to access them otherwise as a result of a disability.

Two books may be borrowed at a time, and must be returned to the Foundation Center within three weeks of the request date. Due dates may be extended for up to two additional weeks, provided there are no other people waiting for the items. To borrow or renew a book or for other inquiries about services to people with disabilities, call 212-620-4230 or 1-800-424-9836.

All materials are shipped by regular mail except in special circumstances.

Materials must be returned on time and in good condition to ensure continued borrowing privileges. The borrower will be asked to notify the Center immediately if a book arrives in damaged condition. The Center provides self-addressed stamped envelopes for returns.
