Sept 28th, 5:30-6:30 pm. This grant opportunity seeks to raise awareness about including people with developmental, emotional, and physical disabilities in all facets of community life, as well as understanding the barriers that people with disabilities occasionally face in connecting to the communities in which they live. The goal is to encourage an empathetic community, open the lines of communication, and better understand why accessibility matters and what it means to be a safe environment for all. Libraries bridge the gap between people with disabilities and those without so that no one feels they don't have the information they need to interact with patrons regardless of ability.

Join us in this discussion about how IPL can improve its services and resources for our community.
