Autism Afternoon

The Glenn McNairy Branch offers a designated Autism Afternoon to encourage our customers with autism to visit the library. If you are a parent who has been avoiding the library because you are concerned your child will be loud or disruptive, please come. Library staff members familiar with autism will be on hand, and signage will be posted to inform other library customers that it is Autism Afternoon.

Autism Afternoon is offered one Saturday a month from 3-6 pm. For specific dates check our Calendar of Events. For more information, please contact Kelly Proudfit, who is a youth services librarian and parent of a child with autism. (All Ages)
