Libraries are located throughout neighborhoods and can provide opportunities for connecting with others in one’s community. They offer many activities for individuals of all ages and abilities including workshops, presentations, author events, and story times. With a library card, individuals have the opportunity to borrow books, magazines, DVDs and other forms of media. Libraries also offer an opportunity to use a computer or other materials that one might not have access to in their home. The resources in this bundle are designed to support individuals with autism and their families to learn more about accessing and using their local library.
