Dr. Bharat Lall serves as the CEO and president of Pinnacle Hotels USA, Inc., a San Diego-based hospitality corporation that specializes in acquiring underperfoming hotels in strategic locations and helping them generate higher revenue. On top of his executive work at Pinnacle Hotels, Bharat Lall, MD, actively donates to the San Diego Public Library, a disability-friendly space.

Comprised of 35 branches, the San Diego Public Library caters to around 1.3 million people in the San Diego metropolitan area. To provide a safer, more comfortable and inclusive learning environment for all users, the library enables people with disabilities to use its resources through its OliverMcMillan I CAN! Center.

Located on the central library’s first floor, the OliverMcMillan I CAN! Center provides services, programs, and professional assistance to persons with disabilities. This includes two private studies and assistive technology that includes, but is not limited to, enlarged screens, disability-friendly software, and adjustable tables. Apart from these amenities, the center also provides e-readers, Braille books, and digital talking books for library visitors with visual impairments.

These services are available during the library’s operating hours. For more information on the San Diego Public Library’s services, visit www.sandiego.gov/public-library/services.
