Free access to information as an imperative of modern society confronts libraries with the challenge how to provide access to information for all users, considering their different needs. This paper gives an overview of research in reading habits in children and young people with visual impairments in Croatia carried out in 2013. The research is based on hypotheses that the availability of information in the media tailored to the needs of a child with impaired vision affects the reading habits in the children, and that public and school libraries in Croatia do not offer enough services for children with visual impairments. The results of the research have proven these hypotheses to be correct. This research has opened a range of questions on factors when considering these issues. It might also be the basis for further research in the area of this complex issue.
