Centre for Equitable Library Access
You don’t have to be in a Hackmatack reading group to enjoy the books. And you don’t have to be a conventional reader.
The Centre for Equitable Library Access (CELA) is an accessible library service, providing books and other materials to Canadians of all ages with print disabilities.
We’re happy to tell you that many of the 2021-2022 Hackmatack titles are available for free in accessible formats for kids with print disabilities.
You can get these titles from your public library, or through the CELA website.
We’d like to thank CELA for the wonderful work they do. Their collection has more than 700,000 professionally produced titles, with an emphasis on Canadian authors and stories, and favourites for kids and teens.
