University of Tartu Library Gets Long-Awaited Lift
A lift provides access to all the floors of the library.
„Until now, a person in a wheelchair could only reach the lobby of the library without any trouble. Now there is a lift that provides access to all floors of the library,” said Liisi Lembinen, the Acting Director of the UT Library. She also said: “Even though, first and foremost, the lift is designed for people with mobility disabilities, it may be used by others, too.”
The lift improves access to the library for persons with mobility disabilities, especially those in a wheelchair, and allows them to work and study there with no extra help.
The security gates of the library have also been relocated. They are now in front of the main staircase in the lobby.
