The Adaptive Services Interest Group (ASIG) meets 2-3 times a year to discuss issues of common interests to Adaptive Services in Libraries and Universities. Librarians and Adaptive Technology (AT) professionals are welcome. 

The DC Public Library Accommodation Statement is here:

Please let us know at least seven days in advance if you require American sign language interpretation. 

The library is located at 901 G Street, NW Washington DC 20001, diagonally across the street from the 9th street exit of the Gallery Place Chinatown Metro stop, or two blocks from the 11th and G exit of Metro Center. 

There is no public parking at the MLK Library.  Limited public parking is available on the street or for $15-$20 a day in lots.  It is generally easier to take the metro.

The Adaptive Technology Program provides adaptive technology workstations for library customers who need them.  The workstations are located in the Adaptive Services Division, Room 215 at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library.  Customers can call ahead and reserve two-hour sessions at either the computer workstations or at the CCTVs.  Introductory training on Adaptive Technologies is available through orientation sessions and regular weekly meetings with Volunteer Trainers.
