Get Some Fresh Air

Sherri Freeman, who does our ILL's among other things, is an avid hiker and has written up an article sharing that interest.

As with all of our programs and content, our sharing is not necessarily an endorsement.  While hiking might not be possible to the same extent (or possibly at all) during our current stay-at-home advisory, exercise is important, and there will be a time soon when we can return to those spaces safely.  In the meantime, enjoy the article HERE.

Big Library Read

Big Library Read is a three-week digital book club that connects readers from around the world with the same ebook at the same time.

Beginning March 23rd, readers can join the Big Library Read by checking out the Funny, You Don't Look Autistic ebook from OverDrive.

About the Book: Funny, You Don't Look Autistic - ebook

Stand-up comic Michael McCreary has been told by more than a few well-meaning folks that he doesn’t “look” autistic.  But, as he’s quick to point out in this memoir, autism “looks” different for just about everyone with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

'Funny, You Don't Look Autistic* is an invaluable and compelling read for young readers with ASD looking for voices to relate to, as well as for readers hoping to broaden their understanding of ASD.'
