Abstract

The paper attempts to establish ways in which school libraries in Nigeria can make available the right information resources to students suffering from dyslexia. Dyslexia is a mental disability and individuals that are dyslexic find it difficult to read, comprehend, lack ability to synchronize letters amongst others. The paper tried to establish what dyslexia is, the cause and symptoms. It also identified what stands as a barrier to efficient library use for the dyslexic. It also looked into the information resources that could be used by a dyslexic to get maximum satisfaction of having used the library. These resources include media resources such as audio books, music and pictograms. The role of stakeholders in ensuring that school libraries are established and well equipped was also discussed. The paper concludes that all hands must be on deck to ensure that disabled student, especially the dyslexic are not left out in the information world.
