About this event

Who can use your websites? Are they accessible to as many people as possible?

Web accessibility is the process of making it easy for everyone to access your web content, regardless of whether or not they approach the web in a typical way. Come to this workshop to learn more about designing with accessibility in mind—and building a better web experience for everyone.

This two-hour workshop will focus on key points to keep in mind when designing for users who include those with vision, hearing, and motor impairments, with some hands-on exercises.

Note: This will be an introductory class. Some familiarity with HTML & CSS beneficial but not required. :)

Metered street parking on Cass, Woodward, Putnam and Kirby Avenues. Free parking in the library staff lot on the south side of the Main Library, all day on Saturdays. Lot is accessible from Putnam Avenue via Cass Avenue. Customers must then use either the Cass or the Woodward entrance.


We will be using the library's computer lab, so no need to bring a laptop. Pen & paper for taking notes are recommended.
