      We present our work on creating a virtual reality personal library environment to enable people with severe visual disabilities to engage in reading tasks. The environment acts as a personal study or library to an individual, who under other circumstances would not be able to access or use a public library or a physical study at home.We present tests undertaken to identify the requirements and needs of our users to inform this environment and finally present the working prototype.
