Do you have any kind of home-bound services?  I might point her that
direction.  I'm not sure that turning off the wifi is a reasonable
accommodation, at least, it wouldn't be at my library.

Subject: [Libs-Or] Patron accommodation question


We have a patron with the following request:


I suffer from a condition called Electro Hypersensitivity, also called
microwave sickness. Many others also suffer from this condition (Alan
DeBoer's wife is one). When in the presence of a strong wifi signal, my
symptoms of ringing in the ears (tinnitus) and headaches worsen.


I am requesting there are days and times when wifi is turned off for people
like me. I LOVE reading and have checked out many books from the library.


Have any of you encountered similar requests? How would you handle this
