Height adjustable desks are available throughout the Libraries.  These are to assist users with mobility difficulties.

  • Electric desks have buttons under the front edge of the desk to control the height.
  • Manual desk are operated using a crank handle on the front of the desk.  If you need assistance please ask Library staff.

There are also two short videos demonstrating how to adjust the height of electric and crank handle desks.

See the locations of the desks on the Headingley Library and Sheila Silver Library floor plans.
